Herb Alpert Scholarship Information

Mission

The mission of the Los Angeles City College (LACC) Department of Music is to prepare students for transfer to four-year schools, associate of arts degrees, commercial music skills certificates, and general music education through courses that teach music literacy, performance, and critical thinking skills.

General Information

The Herb Alpert Scholarship offers two years of study at Los Angeles City College for music majors in need of financial assistance. The scholarship is available for qualified in-state, non-resident, and international students who will receive a tuition waiver based on the in-state student tuition fee of $46 per unit. After the audition process, those students who are accepted into the HAMC Music Academy will receive an additional scholarship for private lessons.

The Herb Alpert Music Academy is an Applied Music program which includes one-on-one instruction with a professor in the student’s area of emphasis as well as a weekly master class. Not all programs of study require students to be in the Music Academy. Admission to the Music Academy is partially based on a video audition (see video audition information in application below).
