Adult Classes

Individual instruction is the most effective way to make significant progress in musical skills. Private, one-on-one instruction provides a great opportunity to learn to play an instrument or to continue building on existing knowledge and skill levels.

CCM offers many ways to help adults develop or continue a lifelong love of music. Whether you are a beginner or have many years' experience, CCM offers classes for all interests, skill levels, and ages. It's more fun to play together!
