Commercial Music at College of the Sequoias: Computerized Audio I: MIDI (MUS 126a-d) Computerized Audio II (MUS 127a-d), Music Business (MUS 180), Recording Arts I (MUS 181) and Recording Arts II (MUS 182). Additional courses will be added as they are approved by the COS curriculum committee. A Commercial Music Skills Certificate is available for students completing the five Commercial Music courses plus a few additional Music courses. COS is now one of the newest Training Partners with Digidesign, and will be offering the first two official Pro Tools courses: Pro Tools 101 and 110. Enrollment for Pro Tools 101, being offered the first two Saturdays in December, will begin in mid to late September.

The Commercial Music Program enjoys a state of the art control room and studio in the center of the new music building, as well as a newly upgraded twenty workstation Audio/MIDI computer lab running Pro Tools. The COS Music Department hosts a beautiful recording facility in Visalia. With two large recording spaces, and one small completely dedicated recording room, the Commercial Music Program can accommodate the recording needs of a small rock act to a symphony orchestra.

Kim has been a professional musician for well over twenty years and is active as a composer, arranger, and performer.
