In the Spotlight: Dance to the Music

cmc tango open house 11.30.15As a finale to the Fall Quarter, the Tango Ensemble and Tango Dance class came together for an evening of live music and dance.

A Student Story: Milo Starr Johnson

milo and jono
At CMC we believe that music changes lives everyday. We are continually amazed with the stories of our students and are honored to be part of their musical journey. Milo Johnson shares her story with us and how finding the right teacher really makes a difference. "Jono is the most generous teacher I've ever had" Milo says of CMC faculty Jono Kornfeld. Milo refers to herself as "musical Julia Child" because like Child she did not discover her true calling until middle age. Milo recently released her own album, The Perambulator (meaning “one who walks around”) which features piano and keyboards by Erik Ian Walker, instructor at the CMC Mission Branch, and other fine professional Bay Area musicians. Read more and be inspired by Milo's story.
