Our Facilities


CMSP is most grateful to the churches who kindly share their space with us! Beginning with the generosity of Trinity Church, our space sharing model has evolved and expanded over the years, enabling us to keep our occupancy expenses to a minimum, while at the same time funding a generous scholarship program. By allowing us to have studio space in such diverse locations, these churches help us fulfill our mission to make music education more accessible to our Piedmont community.
