Music at CCM Preparatory

A wide variety of music experiences are available at CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement for students of all ages and abilities from individual instrumental and voice lessons to music theory and composition classes and lessons, youth orchestras, chamber ensembles and jazz groups.

Private Music Lessons

The core of our music program is private lessons with our talented and experienced faculty. CCM Preparatory teachers follow a curriculum developed by our faculty that includes musical and technical skills for each level, suggested repertoire and additional learning experiences. Most of our teachers use their own training, experience, knowledge and talent to teach students.
