A drum circle at the Achievement Festival

We are looking forward to having our music students participate in the Achievement Festival! The purpose of CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement annual Achievement Festival, held each year at the end of the school year in May, is to:

  • celebrate the achievements of all our private lessons students,
  • offer each music student an annual assessment by their departmental faculty members,
  • promote a community of learners by bringing students and faculty together, and
  • encourage all private-lesson Preparatory students wherever they are in the learning process.

The Achievement Festival is not a competition, but an opportunity for music students to perform for their peers and families, and to receive valuable feedback from faculty other than their own private teachers. Evaluators will provide a written assessment of each participant, which will be given to his or her instructor, who will share it with the student.
