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.
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.
Summer Music Camps for Grades 4-9
The Conservatory of Music at Baldwin Wallace University has a long history of bringing elementary and middle school students to campus for focused music study through workshops and camps. Caring staff, a safe campus, outstanding music facilities, excellent food service and comfortable residence halls combine to make each camper's experience a positive one. Campers live in dorms on campus and attend rehearsals in Conservatory buildings. The BW student dining hall provides delicious, healthy meals; lunch and dinner are provided for day campers in addition to all meals for residential campers.
