The SRJC Music Department offers Associate in Arts degrees in Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, and Jazz Studies as well as an AA degree and vocational certificate in Digital Audio. We also provide the core curriculum for students seeking transfer to the CSU and/or UC as Music majors or minors, along with General Education survey courses and other opportunities for the general student.

Our performing groups include Symphonic Band, Orchestra, Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Jazz Band, Jazz Combos, and other ensembles that concertize both on campus and out in the community on a regular basis. Our outstanding Applied Music program provides opportunities for individual instruction and recital performance.

The Department regularly hosts performances and master classes by renowned guest artists, and we are closely allied with other musical groups in the community including the Santa Rosa Symphony, the Santa Rosa Symphonic Chorus, and various music teacher organizations such as MACCC, CAPMT, and MTAC.
