Personal & Musical Growth

At School of the Arts, we believe in using music as a way to promote personal growth and encourage expression through the arts. Lessons are intentionally structured to meet the needs of every student, allowing instructors to tailor the lesson experience around the student’s interests, goals, and learning styles. Our instructors are passionate about having a strong foundation of trust and personal relationships with their students.

Cultivating Creativity

We believe that performing is a way for students to build confidence, feel empowered, and experience community support for their hard work. Our students are encouraged to participate in recitals for the spring and fall sessions, along with the opportunity to continue their growth through workshops and collaborations with fellow students and instructors.

Where do the lessons take place?

Lessons take place at the Pathfinder Ministry Center on the 2nd floor. We teach in a variety of rooms. If you drive to the Pathfinder Campus and turn onto the west parking lot (between the church and Einstein’s), look for the Ministry Center about 2/3 of the way down the campus. Enter through the Ministry Center door and take the elevator to the second floor. Exit the elevator and an instructor will be there to greet you and help you find your room.
