Each Cégep determines the ways in which the educational aims, common competencies, goals, objectives and standards are implemented. Each discipline chosen by the educational institution as being part of this program can use its own vocabulary and logic. Each course may contribute to the full or partial achievement of the program goals. The important thing is that all of these elements are taken into consideration in one or more courses and that they become specific focuses of teaching and learning, since they have been recognized as essential to the pursuit of university studies in music and that the Diploma of College Studies (DEC) attests that these goals have been met.
This four-semester Music program provides access to the 551.A0 Professional Music and Song Techniques college program. Some Cégeps also include training in popular instruments as part of the program 501.A0 (drums, electric bass guitar or jazz guitar, keyboards, popular song, etc.). Contact Cégeps directly for more information.
