Brookline Music School
The Brookline Music School, which has been around since 1924, offers both private and group music lessons for all ages. Right now their building is closed, but students can still take classes remotely through Zoom and other platforms. According to Executive Director of Brookline Music School, Betsy Frauenthal, the school offers lessons in areas such as piano, violin, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar and other less popular instruments like the oboe and harp. They hold many recitals and outreach concerts in the community at senior centers, the farmers market and the Brookline Booksmith, just to name a few. Although COVID-19 has put in-person lessons and concerts on hold, there have also been silver linings. More people are taking classes because summer plans have been cancelled, and relatives who live out of state or across the world are able to witness virtual concerts. If you’re interested in taking lessons, you can go to their website.
