Colburn School of Performing Arts

The Colburn Community School of Performing Arts (CSPA) serves students of all ages with classes in music, dance, drama and early childhood arts education, taught by skilled instructors.

Founded in 1950, The Colburn School has served our community with the finest performing arts instruction through our Community School of Performing Arts. As an open-enrollment school, the CSPA does not require academic degrees to enroll in its courses, which cover a broad range of styles, age levels and degrees of difficulty. Music classes include applied musical instruction, music theory, chamber ensemble and large ensemble opportunities.

The Colburn Community School of Performing Arts has been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) since 1980 and is also a member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education.
