Offerings for Adults

It is never too late to begin engaging in the arts! The Community Arts School welcomes adults of all ages and of all abilities to engage through our music and visual art offerings. If you are looking to revisit an instrument you once played in school, begin a new instrument, sing with a choral ensemble or engage in hands-on art classes, there are a number of options through our ensembles, classes and private lessons. Our encouraging culture and personable faculty will allow you to thrive in your artistic pursuits!

Private Lessons

Adult students may enroll in private lessons to receive one-on-one instruction and coaching from one of the Community Arts School faculty members, all of whom are credentialed professionals in the instrument they teach. Lessons are offered at many times during the week with most of them occurring in the weekday afternoons, weekday evenings and weekends.. Students typically enroll in lessons that meet once a week for a half-hour for the full semester. The Community Arts School offers a rolling admission where students may enroll at any time during the semester.

All offerings provide a unique and supportive culture. Our two choral ensembles offer ample opportunities to perform throughout the year and partner with professional artists and often engage world-class clinicians during rehearsals and workshops.
