Community Music Center

Community Music Center was founded in San Francisco almost 100 years ago, with the mission of making music accessible to all people, regardless of their financial means. CMC believes that a quality musical education doesn't need to be expensive, that making music together has the power to connect that every one of us has our own unique song to bring to the table. We offer classes for people of all ages, abilities and interests, as well as financial aid to all who need it; last year alone we are proud to have served over 2,400 students here in the San Francisco community.
