The “C.M.C.” will be housed primarily at the Camden County Regional Training Center in Blackwood, N.J. and available to all interested members of the public. The goal of this program is to offer musical opportunities for all members of our community. Whether you want to play in a band, sing in an ensemble, beat on a drum, learn to improvise, read music, write a song or just become more informed about a special topic in music such as, recording, history, or theory,we’ll have options for you all year round at affordable prices. As the Community Music Center grows, we'll have offerings for literally all ages from toddlers to seniors. We look forward to a very musical future with our entire community!

PLAY – Play will bring the tradition of the “Concert Band” into the 21st Century. Instead of selecting only instruments of the European/American concert-band tradition, Play will be open to literally all instruments. Prior reading skills are not a requirement as Play will learn most of its repertoire the way lots of bands do – by ear. Participants must provide their own instruments at each rehearsal and be familiar with how to find and produce the right notes. For the final performance, this group will pair up with our ensemble Sing (our choir) for an upbeat concert where audience members will be invited to dance and sing along. This will be a place where musicians can learn to rock, funk,‘folk’ and swing. If you have an instrument (any instrument at all) just sitting in a closet, dust it off and come play with us! (Although primarily intended for adults, students of high school ages are more than welcome.)

SING – Sing is the main ensemble for, well what else, singing! This ensemble will emphasize expressive singing, intonation, interpreting lyrics, harmony, phrasing, rhythm and arranging in a group setting. All songs will with be performed with Play (our “concert” band) in a dynamic concert held at the end of the spring session. So whether you just love singing around the house or are a seasoned veteran of choirs,“Sing” is a great, and maybe the only, opportunity to hang out with other singers and belt out the great pop and rock songs of our time.

GROOVE – Ever bang on pots and pans pretending to play the drums, blow across the top of a bottle, or use any and all objects as an instrument? Than this is the course for you! This course is designed to challenge students to create music utilizing anything except traditional instruments. For example, such instruments include, paint buckets, trash cans, pipes, bottles, and homemade instruments. Though the class utilizes alternative means, at its core are values beneficial to any level of musician; rhythm, beats, improvisation, genre, composing, melody, form, ensemble techniques, and group performance. The class is dependent on student involvement and the cultivation of creativity resulting in a unique ensemble and performance opportunity. The semester ends with an energetic concert where participants are encouraged to dance and clap along. (Although primarily intended for adults, students of high school ages are more than welcome.)
