Las Positas College now offers CTE (Career Technical Education) certificates in Music Business, Music Technology Fundamentals, Teaching Beginning Piano, and Teaching Intermediate Piano to prepare students personally and professionally for successful careers in the music
industry. These certificates stand as independent programs but are also stackable as part of
our AA and AA-T degrees in Music. Students have the opportunity to complete multiple
degree and certificate programs during their time with us.
Commercial Music students focus on marketable and tangible skills through their access
to industry-standard equipment, software, and instruments housed within the Mertes
Center for the Performing Arts. Guest lectures, workshops, and field trips to professional
commercial music facilities are common and part of the hands-on experience. Classes
are available in-person and online, for the working student.
Our department’s approachable and experienced faculty will help you explore your options, putting you on the path to success in the challenging, competitive, and rewarding commercial music industry.
