The comprehensive music program is designed to meet the educational requirements of students, whether they are preparing to earn a music degree, interested in private instruction for a specific instrument, or seeking to fulfill general education credits. The A.F.A. degree (Associate of Fine Arts) prepares students to transfer to a four-year music program with the intent of pursuing a bachelor’s in music. All music courses at Chattanooga State are open to all students regardless of their program of study.
Welcome to the Chattanooga State Music Department. If you are a new student or new to our program, please complete the Music Placement Test. Once completed, a music faculty member will be assigned as your advisor and will assist with the next step in becoming a Music Major.
Scholarships are awarded annually to recognize both excellence in musical performance and academic achievement. For more information, please call the Music Department Head at (423) 697-2460.
