Middle School Offerings

The BW Community Arts School aims to support students in middle school as they begin new artistic endeavors or choose to commit to diving deeper into their artistic passion(s). From private lessons to classes, camps and ensembles, there are a number of opportunities for students to engage with our expert faculty and be encouraged by a supportive, nurturing environment. We understand how important this stage of development is for young artists and promise to support them as they grow as individual artists.

Private Lessons

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.
