100 years of
music for everyone.

At CMC, we believe music education is for everyone and is a fundamental part of human life. From very beginners to the most advanced players - from the young to the young at heart - all are welcome to be a part of our community where we teach, share, and celebrate music from around the world.

Since 1921, CMC has remained steadfast in the mission of making high-quality music accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, regardless of financial means. Last year, CMC served more than 2,800 students and awarded nearly $2.8M in tuition assistance.
