The piece featured Directors Howard and Darlene Sandifer, Instructor Michael Ross, and Student Randiss Hopkins. Check out the episode here and watch Episode 204 - "Green is the New Black" (episode starts at 27:18)
Austin Talks, a newspaper dedicated to the Austin area reported on the N2OON Concert featuring our talented students from the Buisness of Music Program. The concert raised money for three of our college-bound students in which they will be studying music. Click here to read the article.

Responding to the need for an arts organization in the community "for the people and by the people", Chicago West Community Music Center (CWCMC), a 501 c 3 Not-For-Profit organization, was founded in 1999 by musician, educator and former longtime Westside resident Howard Sandifer. Now, through a new partnership with Chicago Park District, CWCMC occupies a permanent space at the Garfield Park Fieldhouse, enabling us to expand our program offerings to include on-site classes and performances for community residents.
CWCMC is currently offering classes and programs in music education for more than 1,200 students of all ages and skill levels. Programs focus on: the development of musical skill, the teaching of music fundamentals, including, but not limited to, theory, ear training, music and its role in history and language arts.
