Rigorous Private instruction and the Music Achievement Program (MAP)—Registering for lessons at the CCM promises membership into a supportive community led by expert faculty. Develop your kids as well as your musicianship through individual instruction, workshops, masterclasses, and numerous performance opportunities—all included in your private lesson tuition.
Private, 1:1 instruction provides an excellent opportunity to learn to play an instrument or continue building on existing knowledge and skills. Private lessons are offered in banjo, bass, cello, clarinet, composition, flute, guitar, improvisation, mandolin, percussion, piano (classical and jazz), saxophone, theory, trumpet, ukulele, viola, violin, and voice.
The CCM Music Achievement Program (MAP), a free enrichment curriculum available to private lesson students, provides access to broader and more comprehensive music education. MAP enhances a student’s experience by increasing their musical fluency and engaging them with other students, their audiences, and various genres of music.
