There are many rewards of music study: 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. Taking part in all aspects of the curriculum helps a student perform more easily, broaden musical skills, and make new musical friends.

Note: The Music School welcomes new students throughout the year, and we will gladly pro-rate your tuition if you are joining mid-semester. Make an inquiry about private lessons (click here) or call (603) 228-1196 to learn more!
