Northampton Community Music Center

The mission of the Northampton Community Music Center is to foster the love and pursuit of music through quality education, performances and activities that are accessible to all. NCMC was founded in 1986 by Bill Feinstein in cooperation with a small group of parents concerned by the passage of Proposition 2 1⁄2 which dismantled many of the music education programs in Northampton’s public schools.
