Summer Programs, Lessons, and Classes

CMCB is continuing to monitor guidelines from the CDC and Massachusetts regarding the safety of in-person programming. We are reimagining our summer programming online, with the possibility of an in-person performance for SummerARTS and SummerMUSIC in July based on safety guidelines.

(students currently in grades 2-11) SummerMUSIC is a unique, culturally enriching three-week summer program which offers group instruction, community building, and multiple opportunities for developing skills, self-expression, and connection with peers. Young musicians currently in grades 2-11 will enjoy an exciting summertime experience while they explore their instrument, along with a host of diverse musical experiences with our wind, brass, string, and percussion faculty.  Available for students with at least one year of experience on Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, and Trombone.



(4-14 years) Music, Movement, Art, Dance, Drama SummerARTS celebrates community, friendship, artistic development and self-expression with children ages 4-14. Our day program for ages 4-14 offers daily classes in singing music and playing instruments, as well as visual art, movement and dance, and creative dramatics culminating in a final performance.


Early Childhood & Elementary

Summer Programs

(0-12 years)
Using our rich folk tradition of songs, dances, tickles and bounces, these classes actively explore sounds, movement and the world around us with playfulness and joy. Sharing a special musical connection between children and their caregivers, we play, sing and dance using musical instruments and everyday materials.


Private Lessons, Classes, and Ensembles

(ages 7 through adult)
A summer session of private lessons online will be offered for ages 7 through adult students of all levels of experience. Lessons are held for 5 weeks online, Monday through Friday. CMCB Summer Session Online Lessons start on June 22. This is a great opportunity to try a few lessons in your instrument of choice!

Music Therapy

Summer Lessons
