Not many other places can boast those kinds of connections and the kind of world class faculty who are really dedicated to students like we are. The music department here at Cal State LA
has contributed to my musical growth in so many ways. The biggest way was the fact that I had a space to be creative, and I had faculty that really supported that. The music program and the faculty here really care about your education, whether it be as a music education major or a music performance major in whatever genre you perform in. I chose Cal State LA because it is in the hub of LA. As a vocal performance major, I want go around and I want to gig, so it is the perfect place to be. My favorite thing about Cal State LA has to be the community, and how supportive your peers are, your faculty is, and how much they want you to succeed in what you want to do. Most of my peers here that I’ve had at Cal State LA, they are really supportive. They give constructive criticism, they always help me and I feel like to a certain extent because of my peers and also the faculty I am at the level where I am at and I am just going to keep growing. A really unique opportunity that I had while going to Cal State LA was going on tour with the wind ensemble and choir, meeting young musicians and giving them the opportunity to share their music with us. Those programs really make it worth while to sing here and help other people in the community. I would recommend Cal State LA because it feels like home. At my community college I didn’t get that experience
but here I feel like I am supported by everyone around me. I think a student would choose Cal State LA
over another university in the area because of the size of our department, and the individual instruction and attention that we can give to each student
as they work their way through our program. We are looking for talented and motivated students,
and people who are interested in collaborating in a number of different ways, and in different genres and different styles.
And people who are really interested in working together to make music. The words that best describe the music department
