What Will I Learn?
Thank you for your interest in music at Joliet Junior College!
Joliet Junior College has one of the premier two-year music programs in the country, and is an accredited community college member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). This outstanding music program attracts students from around the district.
We are one of a select few two-year colleges in the country who have attained this 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 two 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, Jazz Combo, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, and in two Choirs.
We are also excited to offer a certificate in Music Technology. In this program students learn in our recording studio on cutting edge equipment the skills of live recording and music production.
Joliet Junior College is proud to be an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
Schools accredited by these agencies are held to a very high degree of accountability. Joliet Junior College's programs are carefully scrutinized to ensure they include the most important, relevant and comprehensive approaches to learning.
Accreditation ensures that every student has the opportunity to study in a way which produces not only a talented musician, but a musician who is well prepared for a music career after college.Fine Arts Calendar of Events
