Join a musical community in CMC's Adult Certificate Program 

By Paul Dab, ACP Coordinator


For all of us at CMC, music is about joy, creativity, community, and the discipline that requires an active mind. The Adult Certificate Program gives students structure to their musical studies to maximize the benefits of music-making. The word amateur comes from the Latin amore meaning love and the Adult Certificate Program fosters this love of music in students of all backgrounds and levels. The ACP builds a foundation of musical knowledge so that students can then hone skills in a specific area. An increase in ability and understanding provides further room for creativity and joy in music-making.
