Program areas at CCMS

In fy2020, a total of 1,475 participants of all ages, abilities and backgrounds studied with 50 ccms faculty members throughout the year. At the home campus in Concord, 875 students were enrolled in weekly private lessons and ensembles, as well as shorter-term camps and festivals. Participants ranged in age from 6 months to 97 years old, and included students preparing for careers as professional musicians, older adults with parkinson's, and new american preschoolers and their grandparents in Music & movement classes. Music in the Community initiative (mici) partnerships throughout nh served 600 participants with free Music education and therapeutic services for those unable to attend classes at the home campus because of barriers posed by low income or disability. These partnerships benefited new american refugees and immigrants, including multi-generational classes for toddlers and their parents and grandparents focused on english-language learning, and song-sharing of american and international folk songs with new american adults in their english classes. In serving the youngest children affected by the opioid epidemic (age newborn through 5), the ccms dance therapist works weekly to provide coping skills for very young children with extreme trauma reactions, who are living in foster care because their parents are affected by substance use disorder. A creative aging day launched expanded programs for older adults, focusing on healthy singing, ease of movement, coping skills for neurological changes through expressive therapies, and social connections.ccms serves numerous students with special needs due to physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities, with those services directed by two faculty Music therapists and a dance movement therapist. In fy 2020, we served more than 400 weekly participants with special needs such as autism, alzheimer's, traumatic brain injury, stroke, schizophrenia, asperger's, down syndrome, dyslexia, muscular dystrophy, mutism, speech and language processing, and a broad range of physical disabilities. Response to the covid-19 closure on march 15 was met successfully with intensive faculty research and training for remote musical learning, resulting in a high participation and retention rate of continuing students in lessons and ensembles, and a historic doubling of enrollment for summer lessons. Live concerts before march 15 and multiple youtube student recitals march-june 2020 reached audience members in Concord and throughout new england when in-person, and internationally with virtual programming. These range from the free bach's lunch series and many student concerts, to ticketed folk, chamber Music, and jazz concerts. The march mandolin and fall fiddle festivals attract international participants from out-of-state, canada, and italy, and colleague musical organizations are hosted at ccms for their competitions, concerts and workshops. Audiences include older adults, home-schooled children, mental health clients, Music educators, ccms families, downtown professionals, and others.
