At CCM Preparatory, a wide variety of music education experiences for all ages and abilities are available. The column at left contains links to categories of our music offerings. Tuition information
The Honors program in Music is designed for high-achieving, talented students who wish to pursue further their studies in music. Students must apply and audition to gain acceptance into the program. Upon acceptance, the applied teacher recommends and oversees the appropriate course of study. Upon graduation, the student will receive a transcript and a certificate of completion.
The amount of time needed to complete the program and receive a certificate will depend on the student’s age, music background and previous experiences. To gain the most advantage fromt he program, students should enter it in ninth or tenth grade. The flexible curriculum allows students to create a program that will challenge and enhance prior studies, and prepare them for music studies in higher education. Honors Program details
The theory and composition division offers a comprehensive three- to six-year study of music theory. All students studying music are strongly encouraged to study music theory in order to enhance and increase their understanding of music that is as essential as the technical skills learned in private lessons.
Theory classes are offered at a reduced rate for students studying privately at CCM Prep. Students who study theory may wish to take the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program (TAP). Students can take advantage of the computer labs at CCM and participate in supplemental theory activities. Advanced students may also wish to study composition privately. There are several opportunities to have original compositions performed at CCM. Theory classes meet on Saturdays and TAP classes on Sundays. A composition class is offered, as well as private and semi-private lessons.
All CCM Preparatory students are strongly encouraged to participate in chamber music and/or jazz ensembles coached by CCM Prep faculty. Students will be placed with other musicians of similar ability and age, and a rehearsal schedule will be established for each group based on members’ availability. Ensembles will have opportunities to perform both on and off campus. Contact Dr. Peggy Grant, music registrar, at 513-556-2637, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Cost: $25 per rehearsal.
