Music School

Home / Music School

A student’s musical journey starts with curiosity and desire, a productive teacher fuels those traits. A great music school knows how to find those same traits in its teaching staff, and a great director never settles for less than an inspirational staff. Contemporary Music Center is driven by these principals. That is the single reason our programs and music school are better.
