LSC-Kingwood Music Department
Welcome to the Lone Star College-Kingwood Music Web site! The music program at Lone Star College-Kingwood has two primary functions, depending on our student’s needs.
First, it is designed to prepare students to earn an Associate of Arts degree and transfer to a university. For these transfer students (both majors and non-majors), we offer core courses such as music fundamentals, music theory and sight singing/ear training, and music appreciation. In addition, for the beginning student, we also offer class voice, class piano and class guitar. For more advanced students, we offer instruction in applied voice, piano, violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, drums, flute, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and horn. Students in private and class lessons perform in recitals during the semester. Our seven ensembles (both vocal and instrumental) perform at least twice each semester.
Second, there is a community education track which encourages local citizens to participate in our music classes and performing ensembles, enhancing the skills of the students and the culture of the community.
