CSMA Gives Access to the Arts
Founded in 1968, CSMA is dedicated to making the arts and arts education accessible to all, regardless of age, skill level, background or financial means. Learn more about how CSMA brings arts education to local students through our in-school education programs.
Each Fall and Spring semester CSMA offers a unique Workshop Week to all of our private lesson students. It’s a week during the semester where instead of regular lessons or classes, students can attend a variety of workshops to try out new things, learn a new skill, or work on a specific aspect of their playing (bowing, posture, rhythm, etc.). Learn more about this semester’s Workshop Week.
This week, we’re continuing our alumni series with pianist and composer, Taylor Eigsti, who started taking lessons at CSMA at 6 years old! Eigsti has released 7 albums, garnered multiple GRAMMY Award nominations, and traveled internationally performing everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl!
CSMA will be having a Lost Art Pick-up Event! With so many creative students coming through our doors, you can imagine how much artwork gets made here at CSMA on a daily basis. Unfortunately, that artwork doesn’t always make it back into the hands of the artist who made it.
