College Music Classes for Community Members

This fall we are offering the opportunity for community members to take college music classes at a discounted price on a first-come, first-serve basis with Academy of Music Chair Dr. Christopher Brellochs, who will be teaching Music Theory and History of Music Before 1750. Community members, please join the waitlist for either or both classes by contacting laura.doe@sunydutchess.edu at (845) 431-8916. On Monday August 12, those on the waitlist will be contacted in first-come, first-serve order: the number of unfilled seats left in this college class will determine how many community members are invited to register.

This is a can’t-miss opportunity to take college classes at a discounted price. Community members will not receive college credit with this option; if you would like to receive college credit you must enroll at DCC Registrar’s office by calling (845) 431-8020.
