Stay safe & Keep the Music Playing!

We hope you all are enjoying your music lessons and that you are doing well. We wanted to communicate our action plan during the COVID-19 emergency. Our goal is to keep everyone healthy and keep the music playing!  As of today, check the Calendar link below to see how our hours will change during the next few weeks.  We know for sure there will be lots of families looking for ways to combat cabin fever and keep their kids engaged in beneficial activities, like music. We are now offering virtual lessons! Scroll down for more info on Virtual Lessons.   Calendar of Operations and Safety Precautions 

Virtual Lessons:

VIRTUAL LESSONS are now offered as an alternative to our regular on site lessons. Our member portal hosts our online learning. It’s in the cloud, so no extra software is required. You just need a laptop or desktop computer with a camera & microphone. Your lesson will be with your teacher at your normal timeslot. If you come in for your lesson this week, your teacher will show you how that works. If you want to start virtual lessons immediately, please call 508-977-0200 or email us at
