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.

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.
