Meet the Instruments Month

Age 6-9

Based on our very popular summer program, Meet the Instruments introduces your child to different instruments focus on each of four Saturdays. Register for all four weeks at a discounted price, or enroll in selected dates according to your instrument interest and schedule preference. This in-person introduction to the colorful world of musical instruments is a fun, engaging way to learn about instruments such as cello, clarinet, drums, flute, french horn, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, violin, and more.

Students will interact with BMS faculty experts to first learn something new about the history and repertoire of each instrument before getting an up-close look, hearing it played live, and playing the instruments. Students emerge excited to begin lessons themselves on one (or more) instruments!

Students will be in groups of no more than 6, and the final session that involves wind and brass instruments will take place virtually. 

Class one: strings (Jan 16)
Class two: piano (Jan 23)
Class three: guitar/drums (Jan 30)
Class four: winds and brass (Feb 6)
