CMC maintains that age, ethnic background and income level must never be obstacles to participation in the life-enhancing qualities of a music education. Approximately 400 students, youth, and adults are enrolled in private lessons at CMC’s Richmond District Neighborhood Center site. Students take courses in piano, strings, winds, voice, guitar and percussion. With modest full-tuition, sliding scale fees, and financial aid, CMC is able to serve a large and diverse population.
