There are many avenues to pursue an arts education – be sure to analyze the differences
Selecting Community School of the Arts for your child’s music or art education is an unquantifiable investment in his or her future. With high quality teachers, many of whom hold a Master’s degree in the arts; a myriad of opportunities for performance in recitals, concerts, workshops and festivals; and the chance to serve the local and global community through event such as Community Service Day and the Music-a-thon, CSA’s nurturing environment equips students to become excellent artists, performers, and citizens. The creative and holistic environment found at CSA is one not easily replicable in an independent studio or community center program.
CSA is competitively priced with other arts options
At first glance, our price tag may appear higher than other options. However, consider what comprises a semester at CSA:
15 weeks of private lessons or classes
at least one major concert performance or exhibition opportunity
top-notch faculty members, many of whom hold advanced degrees in their fields and have extensive teaching experience
college campus environment with first-rate performance venues, teaching studios with conservatory-quality instruments, and a visual arts studio
In comparison with the shorter sessions offered by many local community centers, CSA semesters are 15 weeks in length. CSA teachers prefer to teach a class over the course of a 15-week semester rather than the 6-10 week sessions offered at many community centers. The 15-week session allows musical and artistic concepts to be transmitted and internalized without interruption, as well as allows classes to form a community so that each student feels comfortable in the learning environment.
