The City Music Center (CMC) at Duquesne University is a community music school where children, young people and adults from throughout the Western Pennsylvania area study music. Founded in 1989, CMC continues the great tradition of American community music schools that were founded on the premise that music education is a necessary and vital part of life and should be available to all. True to this mission, CMC accepts every student who wants to study music regardless of economic circumstances or ability. CMC has a reputation in this community as the place to receive conservatory-level music training. Many of our students go on to university and conservatory programs; some win international competitions and several have performed with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as well as regional symphony orchestras. The majority of our students however, are typical kids who are at CMC because they want the best musical training. CMC offers students a comprehensive conservatory program which consists of private instruction on most instruments, a core, graded musicianship curriculum, the opportunity to participate in ensembles and to perform in recitals throughout the year. At CMC all of the faculty hold advanced degrees from national and international schools and conservatories. Many have appeared on concert stages here and abroad and some have written books or produced CDs. All students, from the youngest piano or violin student to the advanced player preparing for college, study with this professional faculty. With high expectations and well-defined goals, the faculty at CMC are devoted to the musical training of young people.
