Queen City Music Fest exists to provide quality, participatory activities for pre-college music students and professional music teachers. QCMF taps into the wonderful resources of music professionals in the Greater Cincinnati Area and develops programming that is open to all!

"That's great, but what do I do on Monday Morning?"  Music Teachers are constantly working - teaching, lesson planning, etc. - they work wild hours, and are often working alone. QCMF is dedicated to bringing teachers together - from the novice to seasoned professional to share ideas and develop professional colleagues who then help each other on Monday morning!
