Welcome To The Community Music School Of Springfield

Community Music School of Springfield, founded in 1983, is a non-profit community arts school in Western Massachusetts. Our mission is to provide an equitable and inclusive center of excellence in music and arts education that empowers individuals, inspires creative passion, and promotes well-being in our greater community. We serve more than 700 students annually at our 127 State Street location, and an additional 1,000 students each week in our community partnership programs.

At CMSS, we are dedicated to changing lives through music. We are proud to bring together people of different ages, abilities, cultural backgrounds and economic circumstances to make music in an environment that respects diversity and encourages creativity. These students might never have known one another were it not for a common love of music. Strong friendships grow from shared choral, ensemble and performance experiences.

Community Music School of Springfield is a proud member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education. We were recently awarded a National Endowment for the Arts “Art Works” grant and are a recipient of many distinguished awards, including the Commonwealth Award, Massachusetts Cultural Council’s highest arts honor, recognizing the significant contribution that CMSS has made in building community through the arts. CMSS is honored to have been chosen as the recipient of the 2015 Yale University Distinguished Music Educator Award/Music in Schools Initiative, as well as the New England Public Radio 2015 Outstanding Arts Organization in the Pioneer Valley award and the Massachusetts Association of School Committees 2015 Outstanding School Partner award. CMSS Programs are funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
