What You Learn in the Music Pathway
General education courses teach you about the world, yourself, and others. You study literature, ethics, world religions, film, economics, and history. Build your music skills in chorus and one-on-one vocal and instrumental instruction. You gain a lot of stage time, starting on day 1. We don’t make you wait to perform. We give you every opportunity to perfect your craft.
What Can I Do With a Career in Music?
You can fill concert halls with music, singing on stage or performing in the orchestra. Work in musical theatre or a church choir. Continue your education and training and become a music teacher, director, composer or conductor.

2+2 = Savings
Here’s a secret: biology is biology no matter where you take the course. But the cost isn’t the same. Do your first two years at EICC and wipe out those required general education courses, then transfer to finish your Bachelor’s degree. The 24 months and 60+ credits you earn with us will cost less than one semester at most public or private universities. Save your money. High-quality and low-cost. That’s our niche.
