Music can improve your quality of life

Posted on August 14, 2014



A recent article written for The Week, by Eric Barker, sites the 'nine ways music can improve your life'. From helping you relax, to reducing pain, to making you a better person, music resonates within each and every one of us.

VCC’s music department offers numerous ways for you to explore your passion for music on a casual, part-time or full-time basis:

Community members are given the opportunity to explore their appetite for music through VCC’s community music offerings.

  • Join a VCC ensemble
  • Attend one of the various workshops offered on campus
  • Enrol in a theory, musicianship or history course that will enable you to expand your musical knowledge

VCC offers introductory courses in theory and ear training, as well as part-time access to many of our diploma courses.

VCC welcomes instrumentalists and vocalists in rock and popular music, as well as classical, new music and music traditions from other cultures. Students who are considering entering the diploma or degree program in the future can apply most part-time credits toward these credentials.

Learn from the best instructors the province has to offer and study alongside a group of supportive and encouraging peers.
