Classes& Workshops

The music and arts education workshops and classes provide a thorough, comprehensive training ground for young people who believe they will pursue an artistic career. Cultivating critical thinking, art making, self-discovery, and technical development—all are objectives of our arts curriculum.


The nurturing instructors at CEMA Center promotes students’ mastery of their unique creative processes, opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, exposure to prominent cultural leaders and artists who enable them to shape their own careers. Whether they decide to pursue college degrees or go directly for professional arts opportunities, our participants grow through training and numerous opportunities to exhibit their artwork as well as to perform, publish, and document their experience.

CEMA Center presents annual events to display the work and talent of all CEMA Center participants, supporters, sponsors, and registered artists. The presentation of these events are fundraising opportunities to help with the materials needed for the workshops. In many cases, these materials are provided free to all participants.

Our workshops are lead by a team of volunteers, interns, and professionals that donate their time and money to this cause.  The workshops are designed to help develop listening and communication skills and introduce the idea of the body rhythm. We start out with activities that are great for energizing a group and building the creative risk to allow everyone to take creative leadership. Teaching is as much about entertaining your audience as informing them. We make our workshops lively, varied, fun and unexpected so that our participants will learn more — and be more likely to come back for more. 

We consider our community workshops to meet the highest performing standards for all participants who sign up to participate and the CEMA Center encourages all participants to take music appreciation workshops, public speaking, acting, theatre, and cultural enrichment courses. 

The CEMA Center is firmly committed to preparing our supporters for the demands of a changing global society.  

That is why we recommend our workshops, artist development programs, and participation in the College Tours Programs that we provide annually.
