Music Programs For Schools

After School Programs

Does your school need an after school music program?  Schools across the valley partner with Phoenix Conservatory of Music (PCM) to deliver programs on school campuses utilizing the same level of professional music educators as in our studio.

Often funded by 21st Century Grants, Title I funding or tax credits, these after school enrichment programs will enliven your campus.  With programs such as guitar, karaoke, bucket drumming, Japanese and African drumming and more, students are ensured an enriching and engaging experience.

The programs are designed to fit the budget and curricular needs of each school. They link to school day learning and focus on building developmental assets in young people.

Music Education Impact Program

In August 2019, Phoenix Conservatory of Music (PCM) and the CMA Foundation, with support from US Bank, launched a Music Education Impact Project.  This continues to bring resources directly into public school music classrooms, at no cost to the school districts, participating teachers, or schools.
