The Northampton Community Music Center's mission is to foster the love and pursuit of music through quality musical education, performances and activities that are accessible to all.
Founded in 1986, the Northampton Community Music Center employs 50 professional teaching faculty, serves an enrollment of over 850 students, and provides outreach programming to hundreds more around the community. Tuition revenue only covers about 78% of NCMC's annual operating expenses. It takes the financial support of foundations, local businesses, and individual members of the community to keep our doors open, our tuition rates reasonable, and our scholarship program viable. Approximately one in seven students who attend NCMC require financial aid from our scholarship program to do so. To date, no qualifying applicant has ever been denied financial aid. Thank you for believing in our mission and for making music education accessible to all.
