About Our Program
The HFC Music Department is here to serve you during the 2020-2021 academic year. You can pursue an Associate of Arts in Music degree, a Recording Arts Certificate of Achievement, or take individual music courses from the safety of your own home.
All music courses will be online, including Chorus (see our "virtual chorus" video), Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and Jazz Band. If you prefer to take these courses as non-credit, you have that option too.
HFC is home to an active and exciting music program, in which music majors and non-majors and members of the community of all ages and backgrounds may:
- Perform in one or more of our award-winning bands and choruses;
- Earn the Associate in Arts in Music degree;
- Pursue the Recording Arts Certificate (RAC); and/or
- Take any of our classes just for fun!
Our music instructors and conductors work closely with you, the student, to build the foundation you need to achieve your artistic goals; from an introduction to music theory to specific techniques in ear training, performance development, and state of the art music technologies. Performance ensembles, including chorus, symphonic band, jazz band, and vocal jazz ensemble are open to all by audition. They will perform at many concerts and special events throughout the year.
