Founded in 1983 by Scottish violinist Anne Crowden, the Crowden Music Center serves as a vital community resource that provides the highest quality music education, training, and performance opportunities for students of all ages and skill levels. Our students come from 40 cities in eight counties throughout the Greater Bay Area, as well as a few from other states and countries. Around 11,500 individuals attend classes, workshops, rehearsals, concerts, and other events on our historic landmark campus each year.

Crowden uses chamber music in remarkable ways to enable students to become more expansive learners, both in and beyond music. The result is a transformative education that enables students to grow and thrive doing exactly what they love, in all walks of life.

Crowden employees are like the students we serve: accomplished, creative, collaborative, warm, and passionate. We are always interested in hearing from like-minded individuals who want to join our team.
