Music Education is widely known to provide enormous benefits for youth in both personal development/self-esteem and academic development.
We offer different programs for group instruction such as our Songwriting and Ukulele Club, Piano Workshop, Junior Band, Cover Song Challenge and more! Come by the studio and learn to make your own beats, try out different instruments, write your own song, and take part in community projects.
Did you know that the Waltham Boys & Girls Club is now offering one-on-one lessons in addition to our existing music programming? Now there are even more options for getting involved with music in a fun, stimulating environment.
