In addition to the traditional four-semester sequence of music theory, performing ensembles, and applied (private) lessons, the Music Technology degree is designed to enhance the technological skills of music students. Academic courses and practical experiences introduce the use of computers in musical and multimedia production, including web design, digital video editing, and audio recording.

The Audio Engineering facilities at KCKCC include three state-of-the-art recording/mixing studios, a computer/MIDI lab, and live sound reinforcement system equipment. Our facilities are open on evenings and weekends to allow students to work on school projects. The program faculty consists of active professionals in the recording and sound reinforcement industry.

Students frequently transfer to 4-year degree programs in related fields, and our students and alumni have won regional and national awards including those from the Audio Engineering Society, Downbeat Magazine, and Grammys. Our students are employed both locally and nationally at live music venues, churches, and recording studios; with national and international touring shows; with music industry retailers; at television, radio stations, film and video production and post-production facilities around the country; telecommunications companies; and music business and administration companies. They have also created entrepreneurial companies that address the needs of niche markets in the audio industry.
