Students at Valencia often receive more opportunities for solo or featured performances than at many four-year schools where upperclassmen tend to get primary roles.
Take advantage of music-specific scholarships and other financial aid, along with tuition that is significantly lower than the cost of a state university.
Enjoy the resources of Valencia's East Campus fine arts center, including instrumental and choir rehearsal halls, MIDI and electronic piano labs, and a 500-seat performance hall.
Through the process of building your repertoire and improving your craft, you will gain an edge when you apply for transfer to a four-year music school.
Our graduates have gone on to receive degrees from many outstanding music schools including Yale, Berklee, New World School of the Arts, Stetson, Rollins, UCF, FSU, UF, UNF, USF and many others.
