Music

Amarillo College has an exceptional music program for vocalists and instrumentalists, alike, and students of both are equipped not only with marketable skills, but with building blocks vital for successful transfer to a four-year university. Closely associated with the area’s top opera and choral performance organizations, AC’s vocal program features a highly committed, genuinely engaged, world-class faculty. Instrumental students at AC work with top-flight faculty, too. Students of woodwinds, brass, strings, percussion, guitar and piano all discover exceptional study and performance opportunities at AC.
