Want to learn a new instrument, or get back to one you used to play? Concord Community Music School is the place for weekly lessons in every instrument from banjo to bouzouki, plus voice lessons for those who want to take their singing to the next level. Studying music brings the discipline of practicing regularly, the delight of experiencing music through movement and song, the confidence gained from performance, and the friendships made through ensembles. The Music School’s multi-level curriculum provides a well-rounded musical education, including weekly lessons, regular evaluation, and frequent performance and ensemble opportunities. All ages and abilities are welcome. The semester has begun, but we accept students throughout the year (and we'll happily prorate the cost) -- give us a call at 603-228-1196 to learn more! Current students may click here to go straight to the registration page.
The Purple Finches Youth Chorus, open to all children from kindergarten through 8th grade, builds musical skills in a fun, social environment. It’s a rich experience of creativity and self-expression, and an excellent introduction to music for any young person. The three sections of the Purple Finches Youth Chorus (K-2, grades 3-5 and 6-8) allow an age-appropriate sequence of musical development, as students learn music literacy through regular rhythm, solfège, and ear-training, based on a hybrid of Kodály and other methods. This spring, the Purple Finches will produce the musical play Once On This Island, Jr., and every child will have a chance to be a part of cast and crew. Rehearsals have begun, but it's not too late to join! Call 603-228-1196 for information or to register. Tech Week: May 14-17; Performances: May 18-20.
The Music School's Music and Movement classes are perfect for young children and their caregivers – choose from Toddler Time!, Drums & Fun, Stretch, Dance, and Create; and more.
