Community Guidelines  


A child's musical education begins with the melody and rhythm of the parent's voice. It continues with the support of family and school as voice, body, and spirit begin to respond to and create music. Community Music School classes foster the development and refinement of general musical ability by providing an environment that is rich in the language of music. The activities learned in class nurture basic skills, strengthen the musical bond between child and caregiver, and build support for the future study of an instrument.
