Community Involvement

The School of Music community reaches the world through a variety of avenues, including teaching, performing and serving the community.

Belmont School of Music students contribute to the arts community in a wide range of ways:

  • providing instruction for pre-college and post-college students,
  • serving under-privileged children,
  • participating in active roles in churches, schools and performance venues in Nashville and area.

With excellent music instruction for young children (Belmont Academy), the School of Music provides musical experiences for all ages. In turn, community members are involved with the School of Music through the Friends of the School of Music.
