Nurturing young people and changing lives through music education is at the core of CCSM's values.  While extraordinarily rich in things money cannot buy, CCSM still needs outside funding sources to operate effectively.  Our current tuition realizes a shortfall in the "true" cost to educate each CCSM student by over $150 for all students who register during our fall and summer seasons.  Your generous support of CCSM provides the resources necessary to sustain and improve our school.  Thanks to your generosity, need based financial aid and scholarships are provided for qualified students, the hiring of talented teachers is facilitated, equipment and computers are purchased to improve our educational programs, and our facilities are maintained and improved.  We are working hard to keep our tuition affordable for all interested families, while continuing to provide high quality music education for all.

To achieve our greatest goals, CCSM must have heightened support from its alumni and friends.  Our peers have shown us those institutions that build powerful bases of private support will advance and thrive.  Please join us in our efforts by taking advantage of one of the following donation opportunities.
