We’re On The Move:

Pakachoag Music School is now anchored in Worcester, in proximity of the city’s evolving Theater District.

Our primary home and offices are located at:

10 Irving Street, Worcester, MA  01609

2nd and 3rd Floors at All Saints Church

Finding Your Way:

If visiting the office at 10 Irving Street:

  • Look for signs inside the building to find your way to our 2nd floor office and 3rd floor teaching studios.
  • If visiting:  Please call ahead  to check on staff availability.
  • Entry into the Church is at the rear, off the parking lot.
  • Entry into the parking lot is via Pleasant Street.
  • On-street parking is available on Irving and Oxford Streets with meter.  Also the Pleasant Street parking garage, two blocks east toward Main Street.

Why the Move?

The School’s move into Worcester responds to long-term strategic needs, along with changes underway at our prior Auburn location.  We’re excited to link more closely with Worcester’s cultural community, to be able to position ourselves for future growth, and to build on pre-existing partnerships with All Saints Church and The Hanover Theater.

If you would like more information about the School’s move and associated strategic planning, please e-mail Executive Director Sarah Smongeski at
