The Community Music School offers classes to students of all ages and ability levels. To make it easier for students and families to plan a course of study that addresses their musical goals, our curriculum is organized into packages. Students may enroll in courses individually, but receive discounts when registering for blocks of instruction to create a well-rounded musical education. Students ages 4 to 18 who wish to enroll in an accelerated program of music study may enroll in the UNCSA Community Music School’s Preparatory Division, which constitutes Packages 2 and 3. Learn more about our packages below.
Students in the Preparatory Division who demonstrate excellent engagement in private lessons, perform in studio recitals as assigned, and fulfil all group class requirements earn certificates of achievement from the UNCSA Community Music School at the conclusion of each semester of enrollment. Students enrolled in Royal Conservatory Method theory classes may earn internationally-recognized certifications through the Royal Conservatory Method, starting with RCM Theory Level 5.
The Musical Explorer track is the basic level of engagement for students. The group class component (Children’s Chorus or Musicianship) is included with full-semester private lesson registrations at no additional charge.
