Music strengthens the mind, lifts the spirit, and improves our world. The joy of music belongs to everyone: children, youth and adults.
Love of music starts at Community Music Center where music is accessible to everyone, regardless of financial means.
Our current space limits the fulfillment of this mission.
We are excited to undertake the renovation of 552 Capp Street to provide additional large classrooms for ensembles and group classes, another recital hall for performances, and ADA accessibility. This expansion will enhance our current tuition-free programs and enable us to launch new programs that address critical community needs.

On February 16, 2022, CMC held a festive groundbreaking event for the campus expansion project. The short ceremony featured students and faculty from the Children’s Chorus, Mission District Young Musicians Program, Mission District Older Adult Choirs, and members of the SFUSD Mariachi Program performing “If I Had a Hammer” and “Las Mañanitas,” as well as a surprise appearance by The Curtis Family C-Notes singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” The ceremony included a land acknowledgment and remarks from city leaders, agency partners, members of the CMC Board of Directors, and CMC executive staff.
