Department of Music

Welcome to the Grossmont College Department of Music homepage! Our faculty of local and nationally renowned performers, conductors, composers, and teachers, serve over 60 undergraduate music majors, in addition to serving the campus wide student body of approximately 20,000 students.

The 2014-2015 academic continues the tenure of Instructor, Derek Cannon Chair of the Department of Music at Grossmont College.  And as the current Music Department Chair, Derek would like to welcome you to what we believe to be a most exciting music program.  Offering over one hundred performances per year, from classical orchestral, to vocal jazz, to guitar performances in classical, jazz, and new age, the Grossmont College Music Department provides San Diego's East County with an abundance of opportunities for cultural enrichment.  At the same time, the entering music major will find a fully comprehensive program to prepare them not just to transfer to a four-year institution, but to prepare them to enter the professional musical community.  If your interests are devoted to fostering a greater interest in understanding music for pleasure, the music department offers a wealth of courses to stimulate and serve.

For further information regarding the music major, performances by our outstanding music ensembles, or general interest in the department's more than fifty course offerings, please click on the links, or send an e-mail. You may also find us on Facebook.
