Music Ed CEM Class

Continuing Education in Music

We welcome you to our unique, inclusive music education opportunity for adult learners at our Washington Square campus, 35 West 4th Street.

Continuing Education in Music (CEM) is a community outreach inclusion program for all college-aged students (18+), including those from the disability community, to pursue music enrichment studies. CEM is designed to foster independent expression in music and the performing arts as a means to facilitate independent living skills and community integration. Classes are developed per student interest, offering instrumental, vocal, ensemble, and technology classes. Classes culminate with a performance event to showcase student progress.
