Fine-Tune Your Future in Music
Being able to compose and play music is a gift—whether your talent is your voice, percussion,
brass, wind or string instruments. But even singers who possess the gift of song and musicians who skillfully play their instruments need proper training, instruction and mentoring. The Music program at Broward College provides just the kind of musical tutelage that shapes exceptional musicians. Explore our Music associate’s degree program or simply take a beginner class if you have always wanted to learn to read and play music.
