  • Richland College of the Dallas County Community College District offers both credit and non-credit courses in music. Richland now offers a fully-transferrable Field of Study Associates Degree in Music. Our Dallas-based music faculty consists of working performers, educators, and scholars who hold advanced degrees from some of the top music schools and conservatories in the nation. Our low teacher to student ratio means plenty of individual attention, and you will never have a class, ensemble, or private lesson taught by a student assistant. Our facilities include rehearsal and practice rooms, a MIDI lab, a digital piano/music software lab, a percussion lab, and a listening lab. With in-district tuition at $52 per credit hour and no additional instructional or lab fees, a 60-hour Associate's degree costs less than a single 12 hour semester load at most public 4-year Texas universities.
