The mission of the Community Music Program encompasses two goals:
1. Provide high quality musical instruction to the community at large. CMP students and their instructors will collaborate on the development of short- and long-term goals. Instructors will devise a plan for achieving those goals, easily reproducible practice strategies, and opportunities to develop skills in performance. We believe that the beginning years of musical instruction are the most critical to ensuring a lifetime of enjoyment. To that end, developing technically correct practice, learning, and performing processes are of the utmost importance.
2. Provide hands-on teaching experience for university students. Students are not expected to be master teachers; in fact, this may be their first true “field” experience. They are expected to improve by observation, self-reflection, and experience. They may consult periodically with university faculty for advice as necessary
