Creative Arts Program


Our mission is to provide quality music education to the non-degree seeking individual. Regardless of age, ability or prior exposure to the arts; it is never too early or too late to venture into the lifelong enrichment and enjoyment that music provides.

Participants in our program can choose from a variety of areas of private instruction taught by a staff of professional teachers and student artists. These educators combine experience, expertise and innovation to provide the finest instruction in northwest Ohio.
