Annual Giving It's All About Kids

Community School of the Arts

Discover your creative genius!

 

Our school has programs ranging from guided exploration for young children, traditional classes and lessons in music, visual arts, dance and theatre, innovative seminars, and numerous performing opportunities.

As students play their way through our dynamic curriculum utilizing the best traditions available as well as the latest technology, both children and adults will develop creativity, self-confidence, self-discipline, perseverance, and a positive work ethic through pride in a job well done.

Research shows innumerable benefits of exposure to the arts for children as well as adults. Students of the arts have demonstrated improved brain function, stronger problem solving and critical thinking skills, and higher standardized test scores.

Best of all, students will make lasting connections within the community as they experience the sheer joy of the performing arts.

The mission of the Community School of the Arts is to provide opportunities for children, students, and adults to grow creatively. We bring the arts to life through lessons, performance opportunities, and exposure to professional performances. We offer, to the Greater Tampa Community, the highest quality instruction available.

Lesson Options

Music lessons are offered in three formats:

  1. In traditional private lessons, the student and teacher meet once each week for 30 minutes. Lessons are catered to that student’s precise needs.
  2. Pair lessons also meet for thirty minutes each week and include two students and the teacher. This format offers a nice mix of individual instruction, learning duets, and cooperative music theory activities.
  3. In group lessons, six students meet with the instructor in the keyboard lab for 45 minutes once each week. Students receive individual assignments each week and work cooperatively on fundamentals and music theory. All dance classes meet in groups, and drama meets as an ensemble.
