NSSC has an excellent Music Arts Program, right here in Cape Breton. We have come to know a number of the graduates from the course, and they are all doing many impactful things with their own music, as well as being involved with music relative activities in the community. It is vital to have programs like this locally, to continue having new professionals joining in the local music sector.
