Music coursework falls into two broad categories: courses that study music and its place in cultures around the world and courses that teach the performance of music and an understanding of music theory and composition.

Coursework that studies music can focus on general music appreciation or the development and evolution of particular genres

Coursework that involves performance and understanding of composition include classes in music theory and group or private instruction in a variety of instruments or vocal performance. 

Performance Opportunities

Kishwaukee College offers an opportunity for students to informally explore vocal performance through the ‘Koustics', a student club for a cappella harmony performance as well as beat box.
