Music


What Will I Learn?

Thank you for your interest in music at Joliet Junior College. We are proud to be accredited by National Association of Schools of Music. We are one of a select few Junior Colleges in the country who have attained this high level of accreditation. What does this mean for you as a student? It assures a high quality curriculum that equates with four year schools as they are members of N.A.S.M. and have the same high standards. This also helps our students successfully transfer after their 2 years here.

We offer a full music program with Theory, Aural Skills, Music History, Applied Lessons, and Ensembles.  Students at JJC are able to participate in Concert Band, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, and in two Choirs.
