Why Community Music School?
Since 1994, Community Music School has provided high quality, professional music education to Wake County, NC children from economically disadvantaged situations. We provide weekly, private music instruction to students for just $1 a lesson.
- We start with a student’s curiosity and desire to play an instrument and develop confident young musicians.
- We foster their understanding and appreciation for musical styles and the cultural arts.
- We inspire and encourage our students to pursue further musical studies after high school.
- We build character and self-esteem that transfer well beyond musical studies.
Research tells us that children who study music do better in school and in life, and students indicate that arts participation motivates them to stay in school. The skills gained through music instruction, including self-discipline and the ability to analyze, solve problems, communicate and work cooperatively, are vital for success in the 21st century workplace.
Lessons and programs are held on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 618 Tucker Street in downtown Raleigh.
