Community School of the Arts Programs

Our programs encourage students to explore the arts. We offer both private lessons and group classes. We also offer a Suzuki music program and several music ensembles, all taught by our accomplished teachers.

You can participate in our classes, lessons and ensembles in the fall and spring semesters. Many programs are also available in the summer.
