Dana Hall School of Music offers two 16-week semesters (fall and spring), in addition to a flexible summer term. Students may register for lessons at any point during the year.For late starts, tuition will be pro-rated through the end of the semester. Students may choose a weekly lesson day and time for a duration of either 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Lessons may be scheduled Monday-Saturday dependent upon teacher availability. All lessons take place at Dana Hall School of Music. We believe that learning in an environment dedicated to music is better for the student and offers benefits beyond that of a home lesson.
ENSEMBLES AND GROUPS: TEENS AND ADULTS
Chamber ensembles, piano duos, rock groups, flute choir and jazz combos are flexibly arranged to meet the needs and interest of community music students of all ages.
FREE MUSIC WORKSHOPS
We host a variety of workshops open to all students. Topics have included Songwriter's Workshop, Introduction to Piano for Beginners, African Drumming, Music Theory and Try Trumpet.
PROFESSIONAL MUSIC FACULTY
Our music faculty is made up of nearly 30 professional musicians who are active teachers and performers in and around Boston. The first Sunday of each month, the School of Music hosts a faculty recital that is free and open to the community.
SUZUKI PIANO, CELLO AND VIOLIN LESSONS
We offer a modified approach to traditional Suzuki teaching. Our lesson-based program involves parental participation but not the rigorous schedule (only one lesson per week). We also offer group classes.
BOX VIOLIN CLASS
This six-week class is designed to introduce the violin in a fun and nurturing musical environment. Together, children and parents will make an individual box violin (materials provided), learn violin positions, explore rhythms and songs, play musical games, and pave the way for a real violin.
