About Brookline Music School

Brookline Music School is a private, nonprofit community school for the arts. Founded in 1924, it is the oldest and largest cultural institution in Brookline. BMS seeks to awaken and nurture musical interest, appreciation, and artistic excellence in students by offering comprehensive music instruction to people of all ages and abilities. The School serves the community by teaching in multiple locations, offering tuition assistance, and sponsoring a full schedule of concerts and public performances throughout the year.


Faculty Professional Development

The superb quality of the School’s educational offerings is made possible by the high level of arts education, musicianship and pedagogical experience of the faculty. Over half of our internationally trained faculty members hold a Masters degree or higher. In order to attract and retain such stellar musicians, a Faculty Professional Development Program awards grants so that faculty members may continue to hone their skills with advanced training courses, workshops, master classes and ongoing lessons.
