The music department of NCTC offers students a wide range of opportunities in both performing ensembles and academic coursework. Courses of instruction are provided in music theory, music literature and appreciation, music fundamentals, and applied performance that will transfer to other colleges and universities. Performance opportunities are available for students in both choral and instrumental areas. The NCTC Singers regularly perform on and off campus, and they appear frequently at area churches, civic organization meetings and a wide range of community events. The two NCTC Jazz Bands perform a varied repertoire (including big band swing, Dixieland, and contemporary jazz) through concerts on campus and at other venues. Members of the band come from throughout the North Texas-Southern Oklahoma area.
