At Pakachoag Music School, we offer programs and music for all ages and abilities!
Our programs offer learning opportunities from birth into retirement. You can’t be too young to start as a member of our Music Together program. And, it’s never too late to explore music as an adult by taking private lessons. Music really is for everyone.
For instance, did you know that babies love the patterns and rhythms of songs? Even babies can recognize specific melodies once they’ve heard them a few times. Sing with your child. As children grow, they may enjoy singing with you. Setting words to music can help the brain learn vocabulary more quickly. And, singing is shown to strengthen memory too. But, mostly, music is fun, as well as a wonderful social outlet for little ones, parents or grandparents.
If you are older, the benefits of music are many. But mostly, our adult students partake in music lessons for enjoyment. All of the benefits that accompany lessons or workshops are a big extra plus! Here’s some interesting research about the benefits of music for older adults from “Cognitive Vitality”.

As your child grows, they may tell you they want to play an instrument. But are they ready for music lessons? What is a good age for a child to begin music lessons? Every child is different. Children aged 5 to 7 may be ready for the next musical step forward. Not only are children’s hands and minds becoming functional enough to play, but they can actually begin to understand the basics of music structure and reading.
We have a number of local college students taking lessons at Pakachoag. Whether you are novice or looking for conservatory-level instruction, we can help.
