Clackamas Community College

Music Performance & Technology, AAS


The Music Performance & Technology AAS (MPT) degree provides skills in three broad categories necessary to successfully make a living as a professional musician and closely-related fields:

  1. musicianship and performance skills;
  2. technical skills appropriate to composition, recording, digital audio and studio production;
  3. business skills necessary for an entrepreneurial career that generates income from multiple sources at any time, and different combinations of sources over time.

The MPT AAS overlaps both with more narrowly targeted programs such as CCC’s one-year Music Technology certificate, and also with transfer-oriented programs such as CCC’s AS Music degree for transfer to music at Portland State University.
