Community School of Music and Arts is excited to bring its music and arts programs to the City of Belmont! We can’t wait to welcome you. Let’s take a quick tour and meet some of our incredible faculty! 

1325 Old County Road is home to our dedicated arts space on the ground floor of the new Artisan Crossing building. The facility features four private lesson studios and a bright and sunny multi-use space for arts group classes for all ages (preschool to adult).


Our multipurpose room is equipped with both large and small tables for art classes including painting, drawing and early childhood art.


Programs at the Belmont location will include private music lessons in piano, guitar, violin and voice; early childhood education classes; visual art classes for ages 5 to adult taught by teaching artists; and group music classes. Click here to sign up for classes and lessons. 

CSMA has brand new Steinway pianos in our private lesson rooms for students to use as they learn and strengthen their music skills.
