This music curriculum provides the student planning to major in music with the general education courses and specialized music study for continued post-secondary training in music education, performance, theory and composition. Students planning to transfer to a four-year school must check that school's course requirements. Students should consult with counselors in planning specific courses.
Fort Scott Community College has a variety of music activities for students. Students need not be music majors to participate in the events;
however, they must have permission of the director. Members will perform at collegiate and community events. Scholarships are available through the Endowment Association for the FSCC Music Department.
The Greyhound Band
The Greyhound Band performs at all home football and basketball games throughout the year. Members of the band also play at the pep assemblies.
The Greyhound Jazz Band performs one-hour tour programs at area high schools, as well as at FSCC banquets and senior visitation days. Many of the band members also choose to participate in the Fort Scott Community College orchestra.
