The Musician's Toolbox: Basics of Music Theory

Is your child learning an instrument and want them to learn more effectively? The Musician’s Toolbox is a four-week, multi-level theory workshop here to do just that. Why is Music theory thought of as hard to learn, and only for serious musicians? If taught the right way, it is simple and enjoyable. Here at CCM, music theory is considered an integral part of the study of music.

Concord Youth Chorus Project

Concord Conservatory’s exciting choral program is designed to provide an after-school group-singing opportunity for singers from Concord, Acton, Lincoln, Lexington, and surrounding communities. Students receive training in vocal technique and musicianship, while exploring a wide variety of musical genres including folk, jazz, contemporary, and world music.

Suzuki Instruction

The Concord Conservatory of Music offers Suzuki training in violin for students ages 4 and up with teachers who have been specially trained in the Suzuki method. A comprehensive program of study based on Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy that all children are born with a high potential for learning, and when given a structured, encouraging environment, any child can learn to play an instrument. Students in the Suzuki program learn to make music using the “mother-tongue” approach--the same way they learn to speak--by listening and imitating.

Jazz Combos

Coached by CCM faculty in a fun, low-key atmosphere, Jazz Combo is a great way to celebrate your love of this spontaneous and fun music genre as well as continuing to develop your musical skills. The immensely talented CCM Jazz faculty has performed and recorded with jazz musicians such as Grammy winners Danilo Perez and Mark Walker, and with Grammy-winning composer/conductor Maria Schneider. Also Jazz icons such as Joan Brakeen, Jerry Bergozi, and Yoron Israel. CCM invites students at all levels and instruments to consider joining one of our Jazz Combos.

Private Lessons

Whether you’re a child or an adult, individual instruction is the most effective way to make significant progress in musical skills. Following a conversation with the school registrar, or school director, students are matched with an appropriate teacher who tailors instruction to best fit each student’s needs and goals. Private lessons are offered for children and adults from beginning to advanced levels in piano (classical and jazz), violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, voice, flute, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, percussion, jazz improvisation, and composition.

Composition

Composition is the opportunity for the student to use their imagination and develop the capacity to express their emotions with music. Composition lessons provide the young composer with the tools needed to translate their creative musical thoughts into written, notated music. Through writing for several different instruments, the students will learn about form, harmony, and counterpoint, as well as critically analyze masterworks by the great composers. Each student will compose a minimum of three pieces a year, and each of these pieces will get performed at a CCM recital by CCM faculty.

String Ensemble

This is a terrific opportunity for students to participate in their first orchestra and develop their ensemble skills. String Ensembles are also open to string students who are not currently taking private instruction at CCM. Note-reading experience is expected; this will also be developed during the sessions. Students are expected to make a full-year commitment to the ensemble. To arrange for a placement evaluation, please email Margaret Romero, Ensemble and Community Coordinator.
