Comprehensive Musicianship Through Performance (CMP)
The Comprehensive Musicianship through Performance (CMP) Project was initiated in Wisconsin in 1977 as a means of assisting teachers with the development of performance with understanding in school music programs. This training equips teachers with an in-depth process for planning instruction that enhance students’ classroom experience. This enables students to have a deeper understanding and more meaningful musical experience, as well as connect music to all aspects of their students’ education.
