Foster a lifelong love of music through piano study

The Community School of the Arts offers piano lessons to students as young as age seven, to adults who wish to learn or pick up piano after a long absence. The CSA piano program is led by piano program director Luke Norell. Students may study with one of a core of faculty piano instructors, to be assigned after the pre-requisite piano interview.
