Formed shortly after Shelton State Community College came into existence, the Music Department has built an outstanding reputation for both training and performance. The continuing excellence of the program is a tribute to highly trained faculty, talented students, and the supportive administration of the College. Students can prepare for degrees in music or simply participate in the various ensembles and performance areas. Music-making might range from playing jazz to singing an aria or from entertaining local school children to performing in Carnegie Hall. We encourage the highest level of skill in performance but do so in a nurturing environment. Scholarships are available to gifted students even if they do not intend to pursue a career in the arts. Please look closely at the many different aspects of our Music Department, then join us as we make music together!
