Diablo Valley College is seriously a great community college. What makes it unique is it's outstanding music program. You don't hear of many community colleges having an excellent music program, all around. DVC is known for their Music Production or Music Tech program, but that isn't the only one. The theory classes, the Jazz Program, etc. are equally outstanding. The music teachers at DVC are very passionate and very qualified! I feel like DVC prepared me very well for my transfer to SSU. The theory offered at DVC is very comprehensive and make the switch easy. For me, I basically had to choose between Solano Community College and DVC, and DVC by far is a much better school. One of my favorite experiences was going on a trip to see the San Francisco Opera with my theory class. What community college does that?! I constantly recommend this school to people who ask for a great community college. I would go to DVC again if I had to do it all over again. It also has a beautiful and peaceful campus!
