The Music Department has also established the following learning objectives:

graduating seniors with majors in music should: demonstrate an understanding of the formal, harmonic, and melodic structure of standard musical literature
demonstrate performance competency in at least one area of applied music
demonstrate practical knowledge of keyboard skills
demonstrate an understanding of music in its historical context
where applicable (music education option), meet qualification requirements for certification by the Colorado State Department of Education.
musical performances should offer a wide variety of literature and styles in live concerts by both student and professional musicians. The college and community should both be actively involved in these programs.
