Manchester Community Music School was founded in 1983 as the Greater Manchester Center for Arts & Music, located at 79 Dow Street. The school’s roots stemmed from the Egmont Center for the Arts established in 1981 and the Greater Manchester Youth Orchestra established in 1982, housed at 32 Trenton Street (directly across the street from our present location!). The Music School encompassed both of those organizations in addition to providing a regular schedule of instruction in private and group lessons in voice, many instruments, theory and music history, dance, drama, and Suzuki piano and violin. Founders Sam and May Gruber dreamed of a community music school for Manchester youth and saw that dream fulfilled.
