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.
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.

In the "promotional code" section of the payment screen, you can enter "Bearcat2019" to apply the discount. If the discount code does not work, the office will simply need to verify your UC employment status and add you to the list of families eligible for the discount.

If you are waiting for a discount, you are welcome to choose the "Pay Later" option at check out in order to wait for a revised invoice, but please email us to let us know why the invoice remains unpaid (discount, scholarship, awaiting tuition assistance, need to send in monthly payment agreement form, etc.).
Some private lessons students might have their lessons in Memorial Hall. If this is the case, they will need an ID for entry into that building, as Memorial Hall is locked down at all hours.
To get an ID for Memorial Hall, we need the following:
Email this information to: email@example.com
Returning students who already have IDs may find that their ID has expired, and for those, we need similiar information as above. In the case of expired IDs, we can put in a request to have the ID renewed, and once the ID is renewed, we can email you back to let you know it should be valid once again. Sometimes, we need the original ID in order to get a new one made, so we may need to confiscate the expired ID as part of the renewal process.
Lost/missing IDs: students will need to go to 4 Edwards Center during their regular business hours and pay for a replacement ID to be made.
