CVC is located on more than 300 acres in southern Dallas County.
Our award-winning architecture and careful attention to landscaping have given us a reputation for being one of the
most scenic areas in the Metroplex. CVC is to provide quality learning that prepares students
for success in a dynamic world.
The commercial music & recording technology department of Cedar Valley College welcomes your interest in our unique program. Back in 1977, when the campus opened its doors, we conceived the first commercial music and audio engineering program in the state of Texas. Our plan was to offer the information and counseling necessary to allow a student to enter any of our four commercial music degree program areas, to focus on developing musicianship as well as technical skills, and to prepare the student to enter the music business job market in just two short years.
Looking back over thirty-five years, we believe that we have succeeded in our plan. Our graduates are employed as studio engineers, live sound engineers, radio and television station broadcast engineers, professional performing artists, composers, arrangers and producers. One of our music graduates, Caleb McCampbell, recently co-produced and played piano on the 2011 platinum hit track for Beyonce
"Best Thing I Never Had."
We invite you to tour our four fully-equipped audio recording studios (including our new SSL studio) and our MIDI sequencing and Digital Music Production Lab. Our four full-time music faculty and fifteen adjunct faculty are available to answer any questions you may have about our curriculum or the entertainment industry in general.
