Music

USC's Music major equips you to be a modern music entrepreneur. Learn songwriting from major published writers, study music production with ARIA Award-winning producers, and grow your performance skills alongside major-label recording artists.

You'll start your first year learning song production from industry pros. Spend your second year in world-class studios, honing your craft on stage, and behind the microphone. In your final year, you’ll play major music venues to showcase for industry, and build the partnerships you need for a sustainable career in music.
