Ava started at CSSMA at age 9. Coping with a variety of learning challenges, music is something that she enjoys and finds soothing. Group dynamics are particularly difficult so I was surprised when the staff suggested that she start with “Rock the House” now “Band Factory.”

Six years later she’s learned to love the electric bass guitar as well as the collaborative model that continues to fine “tune” her personality and further enhance her development. CSSMA is a unique place that provides the opportunity and care that you seldom find under one roof. If you find a passion this is where it can blossom. Special thanks to her instructors Phil Stewart and Todd Grunder.”
