Pakachoag is a lead partner in the All Saints Church Afternoon Tunes program which provides free music lessons, instruments and music to young people living in the All Saints / Main South neighborhood of Worcester. Faculty member Nike Beaudry serves as AT’s Mentor Teacher providing guidance to the volunteer student teachers who provide the music lessons. High School Pakachoag students, along with other young musicians from the community, volunteer their time to provide instruction to AT students.

On Mondays, a Pakachoag teacher visits the Hanover Theater Conservatory to teach Music Together classes. Registration is managed by the Conservatory. Financial Aid also available for this class by contacting the Conservatory.
Pakachoag is pleased to extend its reach into the community as a Partner in Music with the Worcester Children’s Chorus (WCC); and Worcester Youth Orchestras (WYO).
Our partnership with the Chorus and Orchestra creates more opportunities for our students and performers.
We will give precedence, when possible, to WCC and WYO families wishing to enroll in music school programs. Please let us know if you are a chorus or orchestra members.
For Pakachoag Music School, our partnership with WCC and WYO is about creating more opportunities for Greater Worcester. We’re not only sharing ideas and resources which strengthen each of us organizationally; but by creating cross-connections with music, the larger community benefits from richer and more diverse experiences. Partners in Music is expanding the ripple effects of our music, inside and out.
Each year, Pakachoag students bring music out into the community. Some of our prior engagements have included: First Night Worcester, Worcester Art Museum’s Flora In Winter, and guest student concerts such as Wesley Methodist Church’s Arts Alive concert series and Fitchburg Public Libraries event series. Each year, Pakachoag students visit one or two nursing homes/retirement centers to provide entertaintment and socialization for elders.
