The Music Department is a community that values and cultivates the creation, performance, and critical study of the world's music.
Students majoring in Music develop an integrated understanding of music in performance, creative work, and as cultural and historical expression. Through its curriculum, concerts and recitals, master classes, guest lectures, residencies, and other public events, the Music Department establishes itself as the hub of musical life for the College and surrounding community of Northeast Los Angeles.

Our new Assistant Professor of Composition, Adam Schoenberg, is already having a busy and critically acclaimed year.

His American Symphony opened the Fort Worth Symphony's concert season, to standing ovations and rave reviews. See here, here, and here. This same piece was performed again on the opening subscription weekend of the Phoenix Symphony. Find out more about Adam here: adamschoenberg.com.
