A Place of Creative Development

Helping children channel full potential

Every child comes to our world with the Gift of Music from God. RSFA develops this gift and shares it with others for God’s Glory.

Our Mission

RSFA exists to help and encourage students of all ages to develop and use their skills and talents for the glory of God in both sacred and secular settings. Excellence is the goal, recognizing and honoring God as the giver and sustainer of these skills and talents.

Music study trains the whole person: the eyes, the ears, the hands and the imagination, but the most importantly it changes your heart. We believe that music is the most precious gift that God gave to a man. We seek to give our students a comprehensive musical foundation that will serve them as a life-long creators and patrons of music.

Our Teachers

Our school is blessed with wonderful teachers who inspire and motivate their students to develop lifelong love of music. From a child’s first step with Music Together Chattanooga to their Senior Recitals, our instructors strive to provide our students with the best curriculum and experiences.


The RIDGEDALE SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS (RSFA) offers year-round private and group music lessons for various instruments. Students may begin lessons at any time during any semester. 

What we offer

Private Music Classes

Private music lessons serve to stimulate and encourage musical potential. Students have unique goals and learning styles. That’s why we take such care to customize lesson plans and match students to the best instructor. We’ll identify proven teaching methods for you, and we’ll incorporate performance and assessment opportunities based on your individual interests and needs. We believe performing builds self confidence, aids in motivation, and helps develop time managing skills.  Ridgedale School of Fine Arts (RSFA) offers private piano, guitar, string, and voice lessons. 

Group Art classes

RSFA offers art classes for children and adults. Arts build confidence. Because there is not just one right way to make art, every child can feel pride in his or her original artistic creations. “A picture is a poem without words” ~Horace
