We believe that music is not only an essential part of a quality education, but also a powerful contributor to quality of life. George Eastman created the Eastman Community Music School (ECMS) in 1921 for the enrichment of the residents of greater Rochester with the expectation that this experience should be available to everyone, regardless of age, musical background or ability to pay.

The Eastman Community Music School, in collaboration with members of the collegiate division faculty, strives to:

- Introduce students of all ages to the joy and discipline of music
- Provide a rich environment that supports each student’s musical participation and enjoyment
- Develop a solid foundation for the young musician aspiring to a professional career
- Present opportunities for lifelong musical experiences
- Offer ongoing development for teachers and other music professionals
