Brookline Music School is committed to ensuring that each student has a positive private lesson experience.
A good student-teacher relationship is essential, so students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests. Our distinguished faculty members are dedicated to providing engaging and personalized musical mentorship for each student. In addition, private lesson students have the opportunity to perform in recitals and salons as well as participate in exclusive departmental events, Dynamic Duos, evaluations, workshops, and masterclasses. Private lessons also include written progress reports from faculty and end-of-year parent/teacher phone conferences.
Our main location is at 25 Kennard Road, Brookline, MA (on the campus of Lincoln Elementary School). Brookline Music School also offers lessons at Brookline High School, Driscoll School, Lawrence School, Lincoln School, Pierce School, Runkle School, and Heath School.
