Music and Art Classes

The Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA), in Mountain View, provides music and art instruction at school. From Kindergarten to 4th grade students receive art instruction during the first semester and music instruction during the second semester. 5th grades students can chose to concentrate on either art or music for the full school year.

These excellent programs are provided by the Mountain View Education Foundation (MVEF) and a small grant from CSMA. Without parent donations to MVEF these enriching classes would not be possible.
