The Community School of Music and Arts plans to expand its current Finn Center campus, located at 230 San Antonio Circle in Mountain View.
The new project will include a 3,350-square-foot wing.
Since Finn Center opened in 2004, CSMA officials said demand for programs has grown, along with waiting lists. The school’s capacity to serve more students will increase with the addition of private lesson studios, classrooms, multipurpose space and parking.
In 2006, with the assistance of longtime supporters Ruth and Roy Rogers, CSMA purchased the property adjacent to Finn Center. Ruth, who passed away in September, was a music teacher and founder of music education programs in Mountain View. When she retired from teaching, the programs were transferred to CSMA, where they have expanded to more than 50 schools in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
The new wing, to be named in honor of the Rogerses, will serve approximately 25 percent more students, school officials said.
Vickie Scott Grove, executive director of CSMA, said CSMA will launch a public campaign to support the new wing this month.
