Welcome to the Central Music Academy!

The Central Music Academy is a non-profit organization that gives free musical training--in all areas of musical performance and to all levels of learners--to low-income children in Lexington, Kentucky.

CMA Rocks The House, a fundraiser for the Central Music Academy, will be held on August 19 with guest host Dr. Everett McCorvey. Join us for performances by CMA students and teachers, a silent auction and a live auction including a trip to Chicago to see the musical Hamilton!

To be accepted onto CMA's student roster, children must qualify for free/reduced lunches at school and be between the ages of 8 and 18.

Since CMA’s inception in 2004, our dedicated teachers have given over 30,000 free lessons to more than 900 students. Please check out the video below for more information!
