The Community Music Center of Boston has been teaching music in the South End for more than 100 years, beginning in 1910. Through decades of growth and development, the accredited non-profit music school has fullfilled its mission to provide high-quality music education to groups and individuals of all backgrounds, abilities and different age groups, and to transform their lives by providing equitable access to excellent music education and arts experiences. The student body is exceptionally diverse, with students ranging from five months to 88 years old.
The Music Center serves more than 5,500 individuals each week, and collaborates with Boston Public School system, community centers, nursing homes and hospitals. The Music Center is located on Warren Avenue in the heart of the historic South End, where it operates a lively, bustling 8,000 square foot instructional facility within the Boston Center for the Arts. We are proud to be a collaborative programming partner with the Boston Public Library’s South End branch. It's a great place...and we hope you will get to know it and us!

Local/Focus is a program sponsored by the Friends of the South End Library to connect the South End branch of the BPL with local artists, non-profit institutions and creative entrepreneurs through informative and interesting installations in the library’s Tremont Street window(s).
