Since 2001, the Applied Music Program has provided music students the opportunity for affordable private instruction in preparation for transfer as music majors to four-year universities or conservatories.

Program participants receive instruction in voice, any instrument, or composition, in various stylistic/historical musical traditions. This program is in high demand; admission is competitive and by audition. Students who have already earned a four-year music degree are not eligible.

Santa Monica College is one of the most common transfer institutions to the University of California, California State University, Loyola Marymount University, and many other four-year schools, universities, and music conservatories. 

Please consider a gift of any size, made payable to the SMC Foundation – SMC Applied Music Program. Every gift counts and larger gifts help us focus on the work of spreading the love for music and of being consummate artists.
