Programs Offered at this Location


In the Building

No Peanuts Please!

The First Congregational Church is a peanut-free building.  Due to allergies- please do not bring any peanut products into the building.

Parents Should Remain On Hand:

Private Lesson Students Enrolled at W. Boylston:

Please note, for students under the age of 18, that parents are asked to remain on hand during lesson time.  This means, if you do not usually attend your child’s music lesson as a matter of habit, we ask that you take a seat outside the lesson room for the duration of your child’s lesson.

Siblings are welcome to join you – we just ask that you respect the space and check that the space is in the same condition/order when you leave as when you arrived.

If this policy presents a hardship, please contact the School Director, Sarah Smongeski, at Sarah@pakmusic.org so that we may review whether an alternative option can be made available.

Finding Your Way:

Private Lessons:  Please use the ramp entrance (side of building, off the side parking lot) and take the stairs to the second floor.  Proceed through the fire door.

If you are scheduled for piano lessons, turn right.  The studio with piano is at end of hall.

Or, pass through the fire door and our other assigned studio will be straight ahead.  [Listening for familiar instrument sounds may also help you find your way 🙂  ]

For Music Together:  Please use the side entrance off the parking lot which will take you directly into the lower level Fellowship Hall.
