Music industry and innovative conservatory training in an urban liberal arts setting.
Occidental, as the only liberal arts college in the heart of Los Angeles, gives our students unparalleled access to the world’s most vibrant musical scene, where some of the most exciting and diverse music is being made today. At Oxy, you will work side by side with our faculty of world-class musicians and scholars to explore, experiment, create, and communicate.
Do you want to write a song and a symphony? No problem. Take a class in music production and be an Oxy intern at one of the world’s leading record labels? Sure. Star in your friend’s film and also write the music for it? Done. Do you want to play bass in the Jazz Ensemble and our resident orchestra, the Sinfonia? Step in line. Do you want to sing in our famous Glee Club and have the lead in the main stage musical? Do you know how much Bach and jazz have in common? Have you ever wanted to play traditional Mexican instruments and study techno-cumbia, while taking a class in music and immigration? Or recreate an 18th-century banquet in a course on music and food?
You can do all of this. Let us be your laboratory.
