Study with USC Thornton
Regardless of your major or level of experience, we invite you to study and create music with us.
USC Thornton offers several four-unit courses that fulfill general education requirements, such as classes in world music, EDM, or even hip-hop. Explore your options & current opportunities.
Beginning or continuing your music studies can be a highly rewarding experience. All USC students are eligible to enroll in one-on-one private piano, string, and/or voice lessons, or a group piano/voice class within USC Thornton.
Music majors, minors, and students enrolled in any Thornton course that requires you to sing or play an instrument may have practice room access. Once you have registered for a qualifying course, bring your valid USC ID to Music Operations in BMH 101 for clearance.
