All lessons will be taught remotely. You have or will be contacted by your teacher to access your live, online lesson. We are proud of how quickly our private lesson teachers have stepped up to the challenge, learning new ways to provide their approaches to teaching in these live online lessons. 

All in-person performances for the semester are canceled. This includes Student Artist Program recitals organized by CCM Placement Services.

Not unless we confirm it with you, first. In order to process ACHs, someone has to physically be in the office. If you are able to, you can login to your ASAP Connected account to make any remaining payments. If you need assistance logging in or have trouble paying online, please contact ccmprep@uc.edu.

To maintain social distancing, we are advising against this for now and staff will not be available in the office. You should be able to login to your ASAP Connected account to make any remaining payments. If you need assistance logging in or have trouble paying online, please contact ccmprep@uc.edu.
