CCM Celebrates Black Composers with Inspirational History Lessons

April 20, 2021 |

Why is it that when we think of classical music, our minds immediately go to Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, or Mozart?

The influence of racial biases permeated the music world long ago, and not just the classical corner. This spring offered the ideal time to shine the light on and learn about Black composers. Their compilation of work—including compositions that seem to have only recently resurfaced—should be studied, played, and appreciated.

CCM Celebrates Black Composers

CCM Celebrates Black Composers

We invite the community to join us for a series of virtual recital programs on Saturday, April 10th that Celebrates Black Composers. Students and teaching artists have chosen pieces from a wide range of genres – classical, folk, jazz, and ragtime – whose composers span the globe. Each student will perform iconic pieces and share a short presentation about the composer of their piece.

CCM's Monday Morning Message

March 23, 2021 |

By Joan Mankoff

Reluctantly, let’s revisit March 2020. A world pandemic infiltrates every aspect of our lives. The world as we know it starts shutting down, and uncertainty becomes the constant. The routines of our day-to-day life dissolve. Everything that can go online becomes virtual. Stress is high, and connection as we know it is low. What’s a community-entrenched, hands-on local music school to do?!

Rhythmicity: The Importance of Practicing Tricky Passages in Rhythm

March 9, 2021 |

By Noa Kageyama, Ph.D. (BulletProofMusician)

It’s often said that timing is everything. Yes, people are typically referring to life or business when they say this, but it appears that the same could be said for athletic and musical endeavors as well. After all, space out for a moment in orchestra, and you could very well end up playing a solo that nobody saw coming.

CCM Workshops

2021 Spring Workshops

Allow CCM workshops to boost the development of your internal musicianship skills—learning music at CCM is more than just learning how to read notes.  Studying appropriate and effective vocal skills enables you to play your instrument with more meaning, emotion, and creativity. Learning to sing in tune, play rhythmic beats, and how to improvise can help you master your instrument. LEARN MORE

Even at these younger ages, students are given the fundamentals for their future study and enjoyment of music.
