Accessibility and Accommodations

CMSS is committed to accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities in our physical space and in our programs. While we are limited in certain ways by the physical constraints of our 1933 historic building, we will do everything we can to support full participation for all students, families and guests.

We welcome questions, concerns, or suggestions on how we can better support your or your child’s participation in our programming. Please reach out to us!

Our coordinator for requests for assistance or accommodations is Sierra Simmons, Associate Director. You may use the Contact Form below (select Accessibility and Accommodations as the “type of inquiry”) or contact Sierra directly at ssimmons@communitymusicschool.comcreate new email or 413-750-9565.


CMSS’ website has the option of auto-translation for every page in the following languages: Spanish, Korean, Russian, Polish, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic

CMSS will make every effort to offer translation, interpretation, alternative formats, and other services individuals may need to participate fully in our programs, services, and events. Please submit requests for accommodations at least two weeks in advance of when they are needed.
