School of the Arts

The AoA School of the Arts was founded by Dr. Leland Chou in 1994. Dr. Chou began with a community chorus and went on to provide lessons in strings and piano. Since its inception, the school has grown to serve over 200 children per year through lessons in music, visual and performing arts. The School is an established after-school visual and performing arts program with a 15-year history of teaching children and adults. Our unique program is  designed to provide children with an opportunity to explore and develop confidence in their own creativity. It is an ongoing, sequential program where skills are developed in arts and crafts, drama instruction, chorus, and voice instruction.

The Leland Chou Scholarship Fund provides lessons to children whose families are  financially disadvantaged.
