Curriculum

CAM’s distinguished faculty offer a comprehensive musical curriculum that includes private lessons, performance classes, and theory classes.

Theory Classes are upon the instructor’s recommendation. Through this comprehensive musical curriculum, our students will not only learn to master their instruments but will also develop adequate practice discipline, memorization skills, and performance etiquette.
