At Community Music Center, we value:
COMMUNITY. We bring diverse people into a welcoming environment to study, create and enjoy music together. We respect and embrace all music traditions and promote understanding through culturally responsive musical training and programs. We adapt programs to meet community needs and partner with others to extend our reach and impact.
ACCESSIBILITY. We believe everyone deserves equitable access to high-quality, inclusive music education and performances. We offer a generous tuition assistance program and a full range of musical experiences that build human potential and a life-long appreciation of music.
STUDENT-CENTERED LEARNING. We cultivate artistic growth for people of all ages and abilities through outstanding music education and performance opportunities. Our accomplished faculty encourages creativity and personal expression, customizing teaching to individual needs. Through passion and love of music, we inspire students to reach their fullest potential.
COMMITMENT. We build lasting relationships with students, faculty and partners, and demonstrate integrity in our actions. We pledge to continuously improve our facilities and programs to cultivate our future, commemorate our legacy, and preserve a vital sanctuary for music on behalf of this and new generations.
