Center for Music Education @ GC

Founded in 2018, the mission of the Center for Music Education at Georgia College is to bring accessible music education opportunities to middle GA. Our student initiatives, such as the Early Learning Center Violin program and Bobcat Keys focus on providing free musical opportunities for students who lack access to similar experiences.  Similarly, our annual professional development series brings musical learning opportunities closer to Middle Georgia’s music teachers. We will continue to assess the needs of students and music teachers in middle Georgia to refine and expand our opportunities in the coming years.
