The Community Orchestra Academy (COA) is a unique program in the Moorhead/Fargo/West Fargo area. We believe in the importance of starting students on string instruments at a young age.

 

Our professional music teachers offer violin, viola, cello, and bass classes to students, offering a strong ensemble-focus. We invite students who are 5 years and older to enroll in one of our classes. Click here to review our brochure.
