Private Music Lessons

To register for lessons, visitĀ CCM Prep's online registration website. Then choose your desired instrument/discipline for the private lessons. Additional instructions are provided for each instrument/discipline on the registration website.


Ensembles

Performing is an essential element of music education. CCM Prep students are strongly encouraged to participate in ensembles coached by CCM Preparatory faculty. Additional information is available in the links below and onĀ CCM Prep's registration website.


Suzuki Music Lessons

The Suzuki Method, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, is based on the evidence that talent is a product of environment rather than heredity. The learning process is broken down into small steps so that the child achieves accomplishment at every level and learns at their own pace. Parents are critical to the learning process with this method and attend every lesson.

The CCM Preparatory Suzuki program offers classes in this acclaimed musical learning system in piano and strings (violin, viola and cello) for children ages 4 and older. Classes are taught by trained Suzuki faculty.


Music Theory Classes

CCM Prep offers individual music theory classes for youths and adults as well as classes for ensemble musicians. Placement is determined by a theory test. Please note: Students enrolled in private lessons at CCM Prep receive a discount for theory classes.
