IT TAKES A VILLAGE

RCM is a family-friendly community of students, parents, volunteers and musicians who join together to make music, friends, and lasting connections. Our staff proudly continues the mission Ed and Janet Simons started in 1956: to maintain a cultural community hub for generations to come.

Our board members are all volunteers – musicians, business leaders, current and former students, who enthusiastically help guide us with the school’s mission at heart.
