Community School of Music and the Arts

The Community School of Music and the Arts (CSMA) was founded in 1981 by the University of Redlands to provide quality year-round musical instruction for children and adults. CSMA is committed to providing affordable lessons to all applicants from highly qualified instructors. The faculty includes the professional artist faculty (full-time and adjunct) of the University of Redlands, outstanding instructors from the Inland Empire, and qualified undergraduate and graduate students pursuing professional music degrees.

With an enrollment of over 400 students and 40+ instructors, the CSMA offers instruction in wind and string instruments, percussion, piano, voice, guitar, harp, Suzuki piano and violin, Early Childhood Music, and several Youth orchestras. Housed on the University of Redlands campus, the CSMA uses School of Music facilities and resources for its programs.

The CSMA is proud to be able to prepare young musicians for their future musical goals: college degrees, participation in professional ensembles, as enlightened audiences and enjoyment of music in general.
