Mission Statement  

                       

                              "CHANGING LIVES THROUGH MUSIC!"

Wilson County Children’s Music Association is in the State of Tennessee a not-for-profit organization. The purposes of WCCMA are: to stimulate, promote, teach and develop interest in music; to educate the general public in the styles of music and the role music study plays in developing cognitive skills; to create opportunities for all who are interested in music to participate in its activities; to advance the general level of culture in the field of musical arts by the establishment and maintenance of a scholarship fund for the promotion of private lessons for children up to 18 years of age studying any orchestral instrument with teachers who have established credentials; and to bring jazz and instrumental music to areas and centers not adequately served at the present time.
