Crowden Music Center
We believe that the enjoyment and understanding of music and the development of skills to create and perform music enrich the quality of life, nourish the human spirit, and foster the growth of intellect, creativity, and character.
Crowden Center for Music in the Community (CCMC) offers after school, weekend, and summer lessons and classes that meet the needs of a growing number of children and adults. An incomparable and vital community resource, CCMC greatly enriches the cultural life of the East Bay. Classes are held under the auspices of The Crowden Music Center, at our centrally located campus in Berkeley, California. Tuition is moderate and some financial aid is available to qualified students.
CCMC serves as a musical "hub" for the Bay Area by:
- Providing the highest quality music education for all ages and levels of ability, while encouraging a life-long love of music
- Reaching out to children for whom music education would otherwise be unavailable
- Supporting musicians, music teachers, and music institutions with training, affiliate programs, and collaboration in performance
- Building upon our tradition of excellence in developing the exceptional performer.

CCMC is a member of the California Assembly of Local Arts Agencies and an associate member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts. As a National Guild member school, Crowden Center for Music in the Community is committed to making high-quality arts education available to all.
The Crowden School
This is a middle school for children in grades four through eight. We combine an intellectually engaging academic curriculum with a distinguished chamber music program for students of strings, piano and composition. Founded by violinist Anne Crowden in 1983, the school provides an environment for musically interested children. Although characterized by our distinctive musical program, our Primary Goal is to give the children a first-class education in balance with their musical needs. Our goal is to produce "virtuoso children," not virtuoso musicians.
The music program includes technique classes, chamber music coaching in small and large ensembles, music history and theory - all designed help each child find his or her unique, musical voice. Chamber music forms the heart of the music program. Ensemble work develops the ability to concentrate, to cooperate, and to accept responsibility for one's own part of the artistic process. Through coaching, rehearsal and performance, students form an enduring bond with their peers within this very special community.
Students may enter the fourth and fifth grades as beginners. However, piano and composition students must be more advanced to be admitted to the program. String students entering the upper grades should have some musical experience. At every level, the music faculty works with the student's private music teacher to ensure that the Crowden program complements and enhances the student's private study. The Crowden program supports both the exceptionally gifted young musician and the student with a more general interest in music.
