Due West Center for the Arts is a ministry of Due West United Methodist Church that strives to provide excellent instruction through both private music lessons, Kindermusik, Dance, Art & Theatre classes to church and community members alike.
Our teachers love what they do and are qualified and competent to teach in their individual areas of expertise. They emphasize Christian principles, encouraging students to work hard and do their best in all things.
All of our teachers must complete Safe Sanctuaries training each year as directed by the United Methodist Church Conference.
