  • The Music Program at Kingwood College has two primary functions, depending on our students needs: First, it is designed to prepare students to earn an Associate of Arts degree and transfer to a university. For these transfer students (whether or not they are music majors), we offer core courses such as music fundamentals, theory and sight singing/ear training, and music appreciation. In addition, for the beginning student, we also offer class voice and class piano. For more advanced students, we offer instruction in applied voice, piano, strings, guitar, woodwinds and brass. Students in private and class lessons perform in a recital at the end of each semester. We also offer two Jazz ensembles (Big Band and Small Ensemble) and offer a Wind Ensemble and Pops Orchestra. In the summer an Opera workshop is offered. Our two vocal ensembles (Chamber Singers and Kingwood Chorale) perform at least twice each semester. Second, there is a community education track which encourages local citizens to participate in our music classes and our performing ensembles, enhancing the skills of the students and the culture of the community.
