Welcome to MCMS!


Hi! Welcome to the Manchester Community Music School. I am so excited that you are visiting our website and I hope you will also come visit us in person.

The impact of the Music School is growing each day. Our mission is to see lives changed through the power of music. That is experienced daily both here in person and out in the community. Our private lessons and dynamic ensembles bring students life-long skills and connections; our music therapists use their clinical knowledge, musical skills, and creativity to bring life-changing development to our clients; and our outreach programs bring musical experiences directly to students who could benefit most but who otherwise might not have access.

There are so many amazing opportunities for everyone to engage in a musical experience at MCMS, with entertaining social events, free concerts, music lesson trial packages, ensembles large and small, and a robust financial assistance program that ensures access for all.

We would love to welcome you as well, to see and hear what makes the Manchester Community Music School the unique, engaging place it is. We can’t wait for you to join us!
