Community Music School


Due to the ongoing respiratory illnesses a combination of in person and virtual lessons
are available. All students and families must wear appropriate masks at all times while
on campus.

The Community Music School is part of the School of Music and Dance at SDSU and is designed to serve the needs of our community and the University. The CMS mission is to provide high quality, accessible and diverse music and dance instruction for all ages, abilities and income levels.

The CMS offers individual instruction opportunities to study most instruments as well as voice, theory, and composition.

We have master teachers who specialize both in providing the basics to beginners as well as teaching the most advanced students. Personal musical growth for all ages is our goal, as well as the achievement of musical excellence and skill necessary to enrich one’s life and provide a lifetime of musical enjoyment.
