Adult Music Study

Try a private lesson!

With the support of the National Guild‘s Catalyzing Creative Aging grant and individual donors, CMSS launched a We suggest adults start with 45 minute or 60 minute lessons. Not sure which instrument is right for you? No problem! We offer Trial Lessons for students who would like to get to meet their teacher and try the instrument before beginning weekly lessons.

Please call 413-732-8428, ext. 104, to speak with our registrar about scheduling your lesson and choosing your
instructor. You may rent instruments, based on availability. Faculty and staff will gladly assist you in making the
decision to rent or purchase.

Online registration is now available!

Classes and Ensembles for Adults

Women’s Choral Ensemble
Advanced intermediate, advanced young and adult singers are invited to share the fun and challenge of a new ensemble. The material will be drawn from medieval through contemporary music. Ensemble study includes musical practices of the time and choral technique. While sight reading is not required, the desire to learn is appreciated.

Joan Marcil, Instructor
Mondays 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
TUITION-FREE to qualified singers; registration fee still applies.

Chamber Music Groups
Our Chamber Music Program places students into small ensembles that work together weekly with a faculty coach and perform without a conductor. These ensembles could range from string quartets to piano four-hands to wind trios—the make-up of the program will depend on which students audition. Chamber music presents unique challenges. Students learn how their individual part contributes to the whole, while listening to their fellow ensemble members.
