Letter from our Executive Director

                               O   n behalf of our staff, faculty and Board of Directors, welcome to the Community
                                   School of Music and Arts (CSMA) in Mountain View. We are pleased to serve the
                               community by offering outstanding art and music classes, private music lessons, a variety of
                               summer art and music camps and more!

                               This summer, we have a robust camp program, featuring a variety of art and music activities
                               for students in grades K-8. Our camps include Crazy Critters, Project Fashion!, Under the Sea
                               Music & Art, Found Object Jewelry, Arts of Africa, Broadway Bound and Animal Ceramics.
                               Digital arts camps let students get hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology.
                                  CSMA’s Art School encourages exploration of a broad range of media for all ages and skill
levels. Sequential classes in ceramics, sewing, watercolor and more develop skills and deepening of personal expression.
Our unique Music School offers private lessons as well as group introductory classes for students who are just beginning their
music education. Our distinguished faculty accommodates students of all levels and aspirations. Summer music workshops
let students focus on their instrument as well as learn composition and ensemble techniques.
Preschool classes in music and art engage children in age-appropriate activities and personal expression. For some, these are
their first classroom experience. Our faculty works with each child and their parents to nurture their participation, learning
and growth.
CSMA also joins with community partners, including Abilities United, AchieveKids and Morgan Autism Center, to nourish
the spark and excitement of creativity. Art, music and dance classes for our special needs students are very popular.
None of our success could be realized without the generous support of government, foundation and corporate funders and
individuals like you who believe in Arts for All. We are grateful for your continued support and the difference you make in the
lives of our aspiring artists and musicians.
