Community Arts Academy students who take part in private instruction not only work with some of the finest IPFW music professors at the university, but they are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of competitions and adjudicated events. Every year we celebrate more and more award-winning students taught through the IPFW Community Arts Academy.
