program offerings

California College of Music offers several excellent popular music programs of various lengths, in which a student can select an emphasis of voice, drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, singer-songwriter, or writer-producer. Each program is designed to help students achieve their personal musical goals in an encouraging, creative, hands-on environment. The average student-to-teacher ratio at our College is less than 12:1, which maximizes the attention instructors are able to give individual students, thereby strengthening student learning outcomes. New students take placement examinations to determine the level at which they will begin each course series.
