The Conservatory of Music actively fills an important role in the local community through our public concerts, summer programs for middle and high school students, music lessons through Pacific Community Music School, or rental of our facilities for community events. Students and faculty also travel locally and internationally, expanding their appreciation for varying musical traditions and bringing their passion for music with them wherever they go.
Pacific Community Music School
Pacific Community Music School is a unique environment carefully structured to creatively impart the benefit of music to students of any age, skill level, and background. Lessons are taught by experienced and carefully vetted professional musicians as well as the Conservatory of Music faculty and students. Music education offered at PCMS is complementary to the local music programs and reinforces the relationship existing between the Pacific Conservatory of Music and educational organizations in the region. We are now offering a Mariachi Ensemble program. Learn more.
