Registration is now open for summer programs at Winchester Community Music School. Choose from several types of offerings for kids, teens, and adults: enroll in a kids’ music program, explore a new instrument, play with a band, or take advantage of an in-depth festival program.

New this year is the Summer Chamber Music Exploration program (ages 7-12) for students who are new to playing in a chamber group; auditions will be held in May.

For WCMS’ popular festival programs, Summer Piano Festival (ages 8-14) and Summer Chamber Music Festival (ages 9-18), auditions will be held in April and May.

Registration is open for additional programs, including Summer Music Exploration (ages 6-8), Summer Percussion Exploration (ages 7-10), Summer Rock & Blues band (teens & adults), and Summer Village Band (teens & adults).

WCMS also offers private summer lessons for any ability level on a flexible schedule—take as many or as few lessons as you would like.
