The Cortlandt School of Performing Arts is dedicated to providing a dynamic environment to engage the youth and adults of the Hudson Valley in developing their musical talents. Our goal is to cultivate a love and knowledge of the performing arts at both the pre-professional and recreational levels. CSPA welcomes students of any race, color, gender and national origin.
The Cortlandt School of Performing Arts utilizes the performing arts as a vehicle to nurture self-esteem, creativity, mental and physical health and to practice respect for the self and others, especially with our younger students. Age- appropriate songs and acting materials are used to train and develop the talents of our young performers. Adults can start from scratch or receive instruction at any level, and will find it gratifying to begin an instrument from scratch, or pick up where they left off.
Led by renowned, experienced arts educators, the CSPA classes offer a safe, enriching and inspiring environment for all ages. Our staff is made up of professionals that not only enjoy teaching, but share musical knowledge on the instruments that they have played and performed on at a professional level. CSPA does not rotate teachers. We strongly believe that the learning process is stunted by that type of structure. You will receive instruction from one dedicated professional that has a personal interest in your growth as a musician.
We offer private lessons on piano, drums, voice, guitar/ukulele, harmonica, woodwinds and strings. Our teaching professionals are masters in their field, and have dynamic backgrounds in music education, instruction, recording, touring and performance arenas.
The support of our community, neighboring towns and local school districts is important to CSPA. As members of the HVGCC (Hudson Valley Chamber of Commerce) and The Ossining Chamber of Commerce we have hosted events and have participated in many events to raise funds for important causes. We also participate in community events, offering our talents to enrich community events. (See "Our Affiliates")
Above all, the CSPA staff is committed to fully developing the natural talents of every student that comes through our doors.
