Hello all- 
We hope your new year is off to a great start. Below you can find information about our Beginner Buds lessons and group classes for students already taking lessons on ANY instrument! Musicians who join a group practice more and learn musical skills of expression and ensemble faster than those who always work alone. Come join the fun- free of additional charge to all RCMA students! (Groups are just $100 per 10-week term for students of other local instructors.)

Thank you and as always, please email or call if there are any questions we can answer.

Small Group Lessons for Beginners
New Beginner Buds 10 week introductory group lessons are starting this week!

Beginner Buds is an easy way to try music lessons in a small group setting. There is a maximum of four students per class, and we can provide instruments for the duration of the course in order to practice throughout the week. Students are given a solid start on an instrument and a short-term chance to see what learning their instrument is like.
Tuition for Beginner Buds classes is only $135! (There is a one-time $25 registration fee per family.) We have a few spaces left in each class.

Piano: 3:30-4:00 on Thursdays at the Catlin Gabel School
Guitar: 4:00-4:30 on Thursdays at the Catlin Gabel School
Violin: 3:30-4:00 on Thursdays at the Catlin Gabel School
