Past Students Love the ACC Music Department
"I was very nervous when I signed up for my first voice lessons at ACC, but the Instructors were so friendly and I had so much fun, that I quickly felt at home in the music department. I strongly recommend participating in the music program to anyone interested in pursuing music as a career or to anyone who just enjoys music as a hobby. My only regret is that I could only spend two years in the music department at Arapahoe Community College."
Christina M. Uhl, ACC Class of 2007
"I attended classes at ACC while I was a junior and senior in high school. After graduating from Rock Solid High School , I attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee with a full ride, pursuing a Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance. From “Music Theory II” to “Masterpieces of Literature” to Dr. Mat’s animated “Music Appreciation” class to playing with Mr. Lewis’ electrifying jazz band, I had a great experience at ACC. I will never forget the meaningful relationships I formed with students, teachers, and everyone, (in particular the players who dedicated time and amazing talent to the jazz band!). Thank you, ACC, for how you came alongside me and helped me become a confident, capable musician and scholar!"
