Music Achievement Program (MAP)

Deeper music education for private lesson students.

All CCM private lesson students are encouraged to participate in MAP, a free enrichment program designed to broaden the scope of students’ learning beyond what can be covered in lessons.

Participants develop, strengthen and improve their musical and performance skills through
interesting and fun Core Activities, and many electives from which to design their own course of study. These activities help increase students’ musical fluency, and allow them to engage with other students, faculty members, diverse musical genres, and recital audiences.

MAP Jr. is designed for first-year CCM private-lesson students ages six or younger, in first grade or below. The program offers age-appropriate, engaging Core Activities and electives designed to keep our young musicians growing in their knowledge and ability, and excited about their progress.
