Offerings for Early Learners
The Community Arts School believes in the importance of beginning students early in arts education. Through discovery, experimentation and playing, students begin developing their social and emotional skills, language skills, problem-solving skills and early literacy skills. In addition, creative movement and imaginative play foster growth with a students’ sensory and motor skills.
We offer programming for early learners in the areas of Dance, Music and Theatre.

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.
Suzuki Center for the Violin
The Baldwin Wallace Suzuki Center offers private lessons and group classes using the Suzuki method for ages 4 & up. With careful guidance from specially trained teachers, parents help their children learn to play violin through the same natural process that occurs when their children learn to speak. The establishment of this "Suzuki triangle" provides the stimulation and encouragement that children need to acquire other critical learning skills.
