Meet The Instruments

Age 6-9


Join BMS for one of our most popular summer classes! This in-person introduction to the colorful world of musical instruments is a fun, engaging way to learn about instruments such as cello, clarinet, drums, flute, french horn, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, violin, and more.

Participate in daily sessions with BMS faculty experts to first learn something new about the history and repertoire of each instrument before getting an up-close look, hearing it played live, and playing the instruments. Students emerge excited to begin lessons themselves on one (or more) instruments!

Students will be in groups of no more than 5, and any session that involves a wind or brass instrument will take place outdoors.
