Young musicians currently in grades 2-6 and have one year of string or wind instruction (in a school or private setting) may apply. Other ages may be accepted based on experience.

Students in grades 7 and 8 may apply for our counselor-in-training program. Students should have 3-4 years playing a SummerMUSIC instrument, including some private instruction. These students, along with high school counselors, will mentor the younger students, based on the El Sistema model of music education.

EXTENDED DAY! 1:00 - 5:00 pm (Monday-Thursday)

Community Music Center of Boston partners with South End Soccer to offer an extended day option for students. A participant can choose to extend their day to end at 5:00 pm by adding on this supplemental program.

At 1:00 pm, South End soccer participants will have a supervised walk to the Music Center's South End location for a snack and to change their clothes. Then, they will walk with a counselor to Rotch Field (Randolph St. between Harrison & Albany Streets near E. Berkeley) for a clinic with South End Soccer between 3:00-4:00 pm. They will then proceed back to the Music Center for pick-up at 5:00 pm.

The fee to participate in this extended day option is $90.

Please note that Extended Day is available Monday-Thursday.  All SummerMUSIC participants must be picked up by 1:00 PM on Fridays.
