California Music Preparatory Academy was founded with each student's overall music education and future in mind. Beyond providing children with critical thinking and artistic skills, we provide students opportunities to volunteer in their communities and perform outreach concerts. Cal Music Prep aims to empower, enrich, and equip each child with tools necessary to become successful in all areas of musical and personal development. Our teachers are fun and are heavily invested in our mission. We also offer teacher training and career development programs.
