Why choose the UNCSA Community Music School?

When you register for classes at the Community Music School, you gain access to a world of benefits through our connection with University of North Carolina School of the Arts: 

  • Students can request complimentary tickets to nearly all UNCSA student and faculty recitals, masterclasses, etc.
  • Our instruction goes beyond the practice room! Students benefit from performance opportunities in and outside the school, music theory classes, referrals to community ensembles and free workshops with CMS faculty and guest musicians.
  • Students choose the UNCSA Community Music School when preparing for entrance into UNCSA High School and College programs. Our connection with the UNCSA School of Music ensures that students are focusing on appropriate material for the audition, and have access to School of Music faculty through our many alumni faculty members.  
  • Class options are available for all ages, and families receive discounted enrollment! See our private lesson and Musikgarten policies for more information on discounts.

Scheduling your busy life is quite a challenge, and your music lesson schedule shouldn’t be a source of anxiety. To help, all families/students at the Community Music School are registered for Teach Works when enrolled in private lessons or group classes. You will receive a welcome email containing your login information and a link. Bookmark this page in your web browser. You’ll be able to see all scheduled lessons, your account balance and payment history, lesson notes and lending library from your teacher and request changes to your lesson schedule when something comes up. 

You will receive automatic Teach Works reminders via email and text so you never forget a lesson or group class. To opt out of either text or email reminders, simply download and follow the directions or contact the Community Music School.
