Community School of the Arts Faculty

MUSIC FACULTY

The CSA will make every effort to accommodate teacher requests, but it may not be possible due to scheduling conflicts.
Many of our teachers are VCSU faculty, commute from Fargo, and/or are busy parents themselves so they cannot always teach when students are available.

However, we understand consistency is key in an effective learning environment, and as such, realize the importance of keeping students with the same teacher from year to year and strive to maintain this continuity.
