Our commitment to providing high quality music education to anyone continues to unfold today in ways that offer life-changing experiences to our students.  I invite you to look through this year’s program catalog to learn how you can grow and be challenged musically in a community referred to by many as their chosen family.

CMC offers lessons on over 30 different instruments, opportunity to join a variety of ensembles, and a range of coursework in areas such as music theory and songwriting.

At both the Mission and Richmond District locations, our faculty provides instruction that is rich and diverse in musical styles and traditions, accessible by students of all levels.  With ages of our students spanning over 90 years, CMC believes that it is never too late to study music.

CMC is proud to have played an important role this past year in the lives of over 2,400 students and thousands of music enthusiasts in our audiences.  We presented hundreds performances at our Capp Street concert hall and at other locations around the Bay Area.

Our Victorian home on Capp Street, with its beautiful architecture, gardens, and a peaceful courtyard, has served the Mission District and other neighborhoods for over 95 years.  I am thrilled to share the news that CMC purchased the adjacent Victorian house, deepening our commitment to our community.  Our enhanced campus vision will allow our community to enjoy more teaching studios, ensemble rehearsal spaces, work areas, and a state-of-the-art renovated concert hall.

These are truly exciting and historic times at Community Music Center. Come make music with us!
