Summer is a great time to delve deeper in to musical study, or begin exploring a musical instrument. During the summer, scheduling for private lessons and chamber music ensembles is flexible. Additionally, many of our programs offer multiple sessions and options for full-day or half-day making it easy to find a class that fits your schedule.
Brookline Music School is located right off of Route 9 on Kennard Road in Brookline. Most of our summer programs take place at the Kennard House, which is easily accessible by car, public transportation, bike, or by foot.
