Casper College offers a modern and well-equipped program that provides opportunities for students to explore music technology, music education, music performance, musical theatre, or music in the liberal arts curriculum. 

Casper College is a fully accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).

There are ten full-time music faculty dedicated to teaching and advising music students to achieve their career goals. Because there are nearly 50 music majors, students at Casper College receive a great deal of individual attention. Perhaps the greatest advantage is the variety of performing ensembles available to all college students, who do not have to compete with upperclassmen to perform in their favorite groups.
