Board of Directors

Our volunteer Board of Directors is composed of cultural and business leaders from the area and parents of former students, as well as several current adult students. This diverse group of enthusiastic music supporters has the desire to guide and lead RCM into the future. Their common thread is having the school's mission at heart – to provide quality professional music instruction at reasonable rates to students of all ages and levels, regardless of ethnic, religious or financial background.

 In addition, the guidance of our esteemed group of advisors is invaluable – RCM maintains an Advisory Board of area business leaders and a Musical Advisory Board of professional musicians.
