The Glendale Community College music department offers a wide range of courses in fundamentals, musicianship, harmony, appreciation, history, technology and recording as well as classes in piano, voice and guitar. And the applied music program makes private lessons available on most instruments, including voice.
Part of the curriculum for many music students is live performance. Performing ensembles will be holding concerts this month and in December, and vocalists and instrumentalists will be participating in recitals.

The Jazz Band will give a big band concert at 4 p.m. Nov. 21 in the auditorium under the direction of Kupka. Admission to either performance is $7 general and $5 for students and seniors.
