Music is many things to many peo­ple, and to the Cen­tral Mass Music Acad­emy (CMMA) it is a craft, a prac­tice that demands desire, com­mit­ment, and per­sis­tence. Whether brass, wood­wind, per­cus­sion, string, piano, or voice, study­ing the craft of music mak­ing requires time, effort, and qual­ity train­ing to build the tech­niques and skills nec­es­sary to mas­ter one’s instrument.

 

The teach­ers of CMMA aim to sup­port what stu­dents are learn­ing in school and/or com­mu­nity pro­grams, whether it be mas­ter­ing a demand­ing band selec­tion, learn­ing how to impro­vise a jazz solo for a con­cert, or prepar­ing for Dis­trict and/or All State audi­tions. We pledge to work in coop­er­a­tion with the stu­dents school direc­tors, com­mu­nity direc­tors, and teach­ers to pro­vide the addi­tional instruc­tional sup­port nec­es­sary for musi­cal advancement.

 

Spe­cial­iz­ing in work­ing with stu­dents from all ranges of skill level, the CMMA will struc­ture an edu­ca­tional plan for musi­cal devel­op­ment crafted for the indi­vid­ual stu­dent. Our pos­i­tive, nur­tur­ing atmos­phere, cou­pled with jut the right com­bi­na­tion of chal­lenge and sup­port, will stim­u­late musi­cal growth by encour­ag­ing stu­dents to work hard, ded­i­cate and com­mit to an in-home prac­tice sched­ule, and help set rea­son­able short and long term goals.
