We're excited to announce that all instruction and ensembles will return to Temple University facilities for Fall 2021, subject to the university's public health protocols.
Created in 1968 through a partnership of Temple University, the Philadelphia School District, and Settlement Music School, this program seeks to support school music programs by providing individual instrumental instruction and other activities for students and families with limited financial means.
In addition to individual lessons and music theory classes, students can participate in large performing ensembles including two jazz bands, two string orchestras, and a wind ensemble. Piano, guitar and voice instruction are not offered. For more detailed information click the tiles below.
All groups and lessons meet on Saturday mornings, September - May.
Admission to CMSP requires an audition and acceptance. Application and audition is free!
All registrations including minors must be completed with the student's name and date of birth. Parents/guardians should be listed as emergency contact.
