The PCC Music program is housed in the Center for the Arts at West Campus.

The program provides extensive experience and training in all aspects of classical and popular music including classes in theory, history, piano, guitar, studio instruction, music industry and electronic music consistent with the first two years of a bachelor's degree in music. Students can earn an Associate of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in music that can transfer to a bachelor's degree in music performance, history, theory and education.

Facilities include a state-of-the-art MIDI laboratory and electronic piano laboratory, practice rooms, large ensemble rehearsal rooms, the 75-plus-seat Recital Hall and the 425-seat Proscenium Theatre.

Major performing groups include Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Chorale & College Singers and Orchestra. The performing groups along with faculty and guest artists hold concerts throughout the year.
