About Us

Vision and Mission
The Community School of the Arts (CSA) seeks to be a significant community resource for high-quality music education. Our mission is to provide professional music instruction for students of all ages and ability levels. CSA offers year-round programming for beginners through advanced students, including college- and conservatory-preparatory level instruction. We aim to link individuals in the greater Eastern Connecticut communities with the artistic, educational, and performance resources of the University of Connecticut and the Town of Mansfield.

The Community School of the Arts (CSA) celebrates its 36th year in serving the community with instruction in the arts. As partner with the Town of Mansfield, our vision is to provide young people and adults opportunities to enjoy and develop musical skills and lifelong inspiration through performing, creating, responding, and connecting to the world.

CSA music offerings include individual instruction in piano, organ, orchestral strings, guitar, voice, percussion and all woodwind and brass instruments; a comprehensive Suzuki violin and guitar program; chamber music and ensembles; musicianship classes; and theater.
