Preparing You for Success

The Lone Star College-Montgomery Music Department prepares students for careers in music through an intensive two-year curriculum in theory, ear training, music history, keyboard skills and private performance lessons. Led by noted faculty, students in our choirs, bands, orchestra, and string ensemble bring a full season of concerts and recitals in a broad range of styles to the surrounding community.

After completing the Associate in Arts in Music at LSC-Montgomery, music majors can transfer credit to any four-year Texas college or university to complete the bachelor’s degree in music. In addition to courses for music majors, the music department offers such non-major courses as Music Appreciation, American Music and Music Fundamentals with selected courses available via Community Education.
