About CFMA

A Safe Place for Your Children (and Yourself!) to Discover the Magic of the Arts!

If you are looking for a safe, reputable, and trustworthy afterschool program to introduce your children to the musical and visual arts, you will feel right at home at Cy-Fair Music and Arts ("CFMA"). Founded in 1993, the school moved to its current location at 7103 Glen Chase Ct., Houston, TX 77095 in November 2005. CFMA was acquired in 2020 by two professional musicians, entrepreneurs, and investors, Dr. Antonius Bittmann and his wife, Valentina Jotovic.

CFMA is serving families especially in the Houston, Cypress, Spring, Klein, Tomball, and Katy areas. Over more than a quarter century, we have not only perfected the craft of teaching the arts to students of all ages but become deeply rooted in the fabric of the Houston community. Thousands of families have discovered and experienced first-hand the excitement, joys, and life-changing benefits of music lessons and art classes at CFMA, working with our skilled and experienced instructors. Many of our students have won music competitions and other awards, and after "graduating" from CFMA, some even moved on to become music majors in college. 

Whether you are a beginner or have advanced skills already, our professional faculty will help you reach your goals and fulfill your dreams. At CFMA you will discover programs and activities for all stages of life, from age 4 through mature adulthood. Check out this website, or give us a call! We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you enroll in the program(s) that best fits your needs and aspirations!

Our Educational Philosophy"Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he [she] was born in another time." - Rabindranath Tagore

Our teaching philosophy is based on the idea that we all learn differently. Each of us is a unique and complex human being. We each have different genes, have had a different upbringing, and learned different cultural values. No matter how old or young, each of us also has had a unique life story with a unique combination of experiences. That's why each student has their own way of absorbing information and learning new skills. In Educational Studies, this has come to be known as the "Multiple Intelligences" theory, which was formulated at Harvard University in the 1980s.

The Multiple Intelligences research concluded that humans don't have just one intelligence--traditionally measured by the "IQ"--but 8 different intelligences. We each have in us a unique mix of these 8 intelligences: Nature Smart; Musical Smart; Number-Reasoning Smart; Self Smart; People Smart; Body Smart; Word Smart; and Picture Smart.

At Cy-Fair Music and Arts, we know that students learn differently, and have a unique way of learning because their intelligences are configured differently. We see that play out in our lesson rooms and classrooms on a daily basis!

Therefore, to help our students have an enjoyable learning experience and achieve quick results, our teachers customize their teaching style to the learning style and goals of each individual student.
