Community Music Program

Summer 2017 Term

Summer Term begins Jun 5, 2017.
Registrations will be accepted starting May 30, 2017.

We are proud of the commitment of our teachers, to the community. The staff of the Community Music Program provides a comprehensive program of musical training for the amateur performer, enlightened listener, and professional musician. We are confident that our music education program enhances creativity, discipline, communication, self-esteem, and nurtures the inner artist in all ages. Classes in music are offered over a wide age-range, including babies and senior citizens.

Notes to Parents: Although the Creative Arts Center is a safe environment, parents are advised to accompany young children to and from their classes/lessons and to not leave them unattended for any length of time. Teachers cannot be expected to be responsible for waiting around after classes to keep watch on young children. 

Please be sure to keep in touch regularly with your teachers concerning lesson times. If you are not sure about a lesson time, please contact your teacher to make sure there has not been a misunderstanding. Communication is the key to preventing and solving problems before they turn into larger issues.

Please be aware that our faculty have extremely busy schedules like you do. When you register for lessons, you have made a commitment, as our teachers have, to show up each week for the lesson/class. As much as we sympathize with your busy schedule and daily issues that come up in your lives, our teachers are not obligated to makeup lessons unless they have cancelled. Please also be advised that no adjustments in tuition will be given for cancellations. Thank you for your understanding.

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all scheduled lessons and classes.  In case of school (WVU) closure or teacher absence for any reason, a make-up lesson will be arranged. Teachers are not obligated to make up lessons resulting from student cancellations and there will be no adjustment in tuition.
