At the Colburn Community School of Performing Arts, we are committed to making music education accessible to everyone who has a passion and curiosity for music at every level of ability. Our world-class teachers share their expertise with students of varying ages and wide-ranging musical interests.
We offer individual sessions on many instruments—piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and voice. Plus, students come together to perform chamber music and as part of large ensembles.
The Community School also focuses on students’ understanding of music theory. Classes cover the basics of reading pitch and rhythm. As they progress in musicality, students employ more complex analysis skills. We encourage students to combine theory with applied instruction and ensemble activities for a well-rounded educational experience.
