THE AACM SCHOOL OF MUSIC aims to give talented youth the opportunity to realize his or her musical potential, and to give all students the understanding of the beauty of music in general and Great Black Music in particular... 

This appreciation in turn, results in a respect for music of all types and a comprehension of the merits of discipline. The AACM School of Music aims to foster the skills and discipline in young people that they can apply to any endeavor they may undertake. 

The AACM School of Music faculty is made up entirely of AACM members, many of whom are themselves graduates of the program. All teachers volunteer their time and expertise.
