Our teachers hold advanced degrees and have extensive experience working with students of all levels and abilities.

CSA Faculty 2016

At the Community School of the Arts, our instructors are our greatest asset. They are at the top of their field, with significant education and experience behind them. More than 65% of our instructors hold at least a Master’s degree in their respective instrument or field.

CSA instructors are professionally trained in their areas of expertise and are experienced in working with students of all ages, nurturing their students as they help them learn artistic expression while at the same time applying the discipline and joy of study in the arts to their everyday lives.

All CSA instructors complete background checks, participate in active-shooter drills on the Wheaton College campus and are DCFS mandated reporters. 

Our instructors are dedicated to their students and have wonderful relationships with students and parents alike.
