Welcome From Our Director

For more than a century, our historic campus has attracted leading performers and teachers from around the world. With the launch of the Eastman Community Music School World Campus, we invite you to join our community and improve your musicianship … wherever you live!

We have long standing in the Rochester community as a “brick and mortar” school. Our dedicated teaching artists form an exceptional faculty, and are experts in developing the musical skills of budding musicians considering a professional music career, in instructing beginning students of all ages, and in supporting adult learners.

Please explore this exceptional opportunity to enrich your family – and your community – through music.
