PVCC Fine Arts

As PVCC faculty, the musicians bring their musical experience to the classroom in courses ranging from ensembles to music theory to private instruction. The department’s year-round course offerings support those students who wish to continue their musical studies as a music major at a four-year institution or who wish to obtain a specific skill in a musical field. In addition to the Music Program, the Division of Fine & Performing Arts also provides courses, special events and an artist’s community for students at all levels in the disciplines of Creative Writing, Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts.
