Music studies at Kilgore College offer students the opportunity to receive individual instruction in all major performance areas and to be involved in a variety of ensembles. Music students at Kilgore College are afforded numerous performance opportunities, many of which would be often reserved for third and fourth-year students at larger four-year institutions.
