The Orange Coast College Music Department is a place where you'll make beautiful music, lasting friendships, and a path to a rewarding career or a lifelong passion. Our programs are designed to provide dedicated students with the knowledge and experience they need to transfer to top four-year institutions and to succeed in the highly competitive business of music. OCC's outstanding faculty, top-notch ensembles, and commitment to helping our students become complete musicians has produced a legacy of talented and successful graduates who are leaving their mark on the worlds of classical and commercial music. 

Orange Coast College is located close to the heart of the entertainment industry in Costa Mesa, California. Our programs are designed to help provide the serious student with the theory, hands-on training, and performing experience needed for success in the highly competitive music industry. Traditional music courses and transfer programs are tightly integrated with music industry courses to provide comprehensive programs.

We encourage our students to become proficient in a wide variety of musical styles, and to be aware of the many career alternatives open to them. Most of all, we encourage them to discover and nurture a lifelong love of music and the friends and community it brings with it!
