Pursuing musical excellence through accessible instruction, collaborative partnerships and performance.
The Music Conservatory of Coeur d’Alene (MCCDA) will serve the mission by creating an infrastructure of teachers, classes, performers and events. By collaborating with other music schools, MCCDA will share teachers, students and events to create the magic of music that will inspire participants and audience. By producing a program that instills the same values and accreditations that the Conservatory of Sandpoint uses, we can ensure a similar success. Spokane, and its potential conservatory, will be a resource as we grow—helping to make a “triangle of collaboration” between Coeur d’Alene, Sandpoint, and Spokane.
Classes will begin in piano, all strings, some winds, and children’s choir. Students will start with preschool, leading into the early childhood exploration with private lessons, and evolving into ensemble experiences with middle and high school students help develop participants talents and abilities. College students may help teach and inspire the classes, along with teachers from both conservatories and the college. The conservatory will host professional and exemplary performing artists; master classes with visiting artists will bring teachers from outreaching areas. Local public schools can recommend budding artists for instruction. The economy promises to blossom with the outreach and invitation of those performing and producing, as well as those observing and serving. The goal for the future is to bring a performing arts center to Coeur d’Alene that will serve the inland North Idaho.
