Music Achievement Program

Music Achievement Program (MAP)—our goal is to create well-rounded and confident musicians at CCM by providing music education beyond what can be covered in the private lessons. Last year was the introduction of MAP, and we learned a lot. Be sure to check out the improvements we’ve made to the program; all to enhance your child’s musical education. Will they reach for the Gold this year?

Save the date! Saturday, March 30th, 6 pm for the CCM American Roots Winter Party featuring the band Twisted Pine.  Details to come soon.

How Music Connects Us

How Music Connects Us

At CCM, we play, sing, learn, and listen together. Get inspired and creative; simply enjoy music with us. Music educates and motivates and keeps us in-tune and in good shape. Whether you like classical, jazz, old-time, or bluegrass, bringing music into your life will help with relaxing and dealing with stress.

Why not improve your mood, feel good and rev up your engine with an extremely social group class or jam session this fall? Let’s learn about various genres and cultures through music.
