Welcome to Los Angeles Harbor
College Music Department

The Harbor College Music Department offers a multi-faceted approach to music education. Our music facility includes Music Hall, recording art studio, ensemble room, music computer lab, piano lab, individual practice rooms and general lecture rooms. Our professional faculty provides students with resources to prepare them for transfer to a 4-year program or to the workplace with one or more of our degrees or certificates. We also host guest artists and faculty performance events to provide professional network and opportunities for our music students.

"My love of music was fostered at Harbor College. Everyone from faculty and students alike were really supportive of me.

The teachers there helped me succeed by investing their time and showing me my potential as a musician.

The students in the music program were all friendly and down to earth people" - Michael H.
