What makes C4A different from other music schools in the area?
A primary goal of our school is to provide all of our students with the experience of playing with other musicians. In contrast with many traditional conservatory programs, we think that lessons should support ensemble playing rather than the reverse. To that end, we continually encourage and challenge our faculty to create new groups in chamber music, jazz, bluegrass, fiddling, and other genres.
How young/old can a student be?
Each person is different, and we acknowledge that some children really are too young to play an instrument, but if a child has a strong desire to make music we encourage parents to bring him or her in to observe a lesson or meet with a teacher.
We have never met anyone who is too old to start learning an instrument. We recognize that older students may have limitations due to decreased flexibility but we will work with you to help you reach your best potential.
Must I audition?
No! We believe that everyone who wants to play an instrument should be given a chance, regardless experience.
I don’t own an instrument. Can you help me find one?
Yes, we can help you out. We recommend Corson Music for violin family rentals. For other instruments or purchases your teacher can guide you.
Does C4A accept used instruments?
We are happy to accept used instruments in playable condition. Please contact us if you have one you’d like to donate.
Does C4A rent rooms out for performances or rehearsals?
It’s possible and depends on our schedule. Contact us if you want to find out.
