Parkland Highlight


Department: Music

At Parkland, you’ll work with professional musicians who are also excellent teachers. Core music courses are taught by full-time, tenured faculty who hold doctorates in music composition from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Adjunct faculty hold degrees from institutions such as the UIUC, the Eastman School of Music, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Many faculty are published authors and BMI composers. 

You’ll receive individualized attention in small classes where you’ll study music theory, aural skills, class piano, and music history. In Parkland’s state-of-the-art music computer labs, you’ll become adept at computer programs like Finale Notation software, Digital Performer sequencing software, and Band-in-a-Box. 
Parkland’s music program includes private instruction and the opportunity to develop your talents by performing with professional and student musicians in choral, instrumental, and jazz ensembles. You’ll also have opportunities to perform in musical theatre productions, either onstage or in the orchestra.
