Welcome to our online remote learning program, Pakachoag Connect. Pakachoag Connect offers a number of online learning choices with Pakachoag Music School starting Fall 2020.
During COVID-19, many of our programs have been or continue to be offered online only. However, going forward, when all or most activities return to in-person, Pakachoag will continue to offer remote options for some programs.

Pakachoag Music School is investing in technology for remote learning to provide high quality experiences, in keeping with our overall commitment to quality teaching and learning.
School-wide policies help support a predictable and safe experience while online.
We are happy to assist new students and families with technology information to help get you set up and problem solve if you encounter any connectivity issues. For families receiving financial aid, we hope to assist in the near future with loans of devices needed for online learning as funding permits.
We have been very pleased at how well [my child’s] online piano lessons have been going and that she still has the opportunity to take good quality lessons in this time of social distancing. Thanks for giving us a way to keep music in our lives!” Anonymous Parent Survey Response
We can’t stress how important music has been to our child and family’s spirits during this crisis. Thank you to the Pakachoag administration and teachers for their dedication. We love you!” Jen from Charlton, MA
I cannot thank you enough for pulling together such an impressive and inspiring online curriculum. We’ve been skeptical of distance-learning activities for our daughter P., as she’s 2.5 years old and doesn’t really grasp the concept yet, and she has not enjoyed some of the other online classes for her age group. However, last week was our first Music Together class (via Zoom), and we loved it! Thank you again for what your community has done for our families during this unpredictable and unprecedented time.” Music Together Parent
Usually no, however we will provide, as part of Pakachoag Connect , recommendations on some basic equipment which can enhance your online learning experience. Once we know your program of interest or for lessons, your goals and background, we can provide more information.
If you have internet access, we can help you get started. A chromebook or other type of pad or laptop with stand works best. We can offer tech support around simple ways to improve internet connectivity if needed.
For our early childhood program, the screen is for mom, dad, or grandparent/caregiver. You will be the teacher/role model for your child, guided by our Pakachoag early childhood specialist. Everyone sings, shakes, jumps up and down, etc. No experience or special skills needed!
