Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university will work with a music advisor to plan out their academic path while at Kirkwood and beyond.
Kirkwood’s music advisor is very knowledgeable and a key component in making sure students get everything they need for a seamless transfer. Students should work with their advisor to plan out their class schedule based on Kirkwood’s graduation requirements, as well as the admission requirements and transferability of classes to their transfer school. Students interested in continuing their education within the music field should start working with their music advisor early on in their education.
Music students should expect to take the following:
- Four-semester Music Theory sequence
- Participate in a major ensemble group each semester (Concert Choir, Concert Band or Jazz Ensemble)
- Enroll in upper level applied lessons with performance seminar
- Class piano or applied piano to ensure proficiency
