A wide variety of music experiences are available at CCM Prep for students of all ages and abilities. Offerings include ensembles, music theory classes and private lessons for a wide variety of instruments, voice and composition.
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.
To register for lessons, visit 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.

Early Childhood Classes
Our goal is to introduce young children to the performing arts and essential skills in a nurturing, creative environment. Offerings include multi-arts classes that incorporate music, movement and creative play; dance classes, private lessons for guitar and Suzuki music lessons for piano, violin, viola or cello.
Music Theory Classes
Music theory is essential to a music students’ training. Students enrolled in theory classes have access to the CCM technology labs, and students enrolled in private lessons at CCM Prep receive a discount for theory classes. A theory test determines proper placement. We offer music theory classes for youth and adults and music theory classes for ensemble musicians.
