About Dedham School of Music

The Dedham School of Music opened its doors in September 2008. In its first year, the music school and its first 8 students set the mode for which it has since based itself on: hire outstanding teachers and provide affordable access to music learning, performance, and creation for students of all ages and abilities. As of September 2015, the Dedham School of Music has begun its eighth year with almost 270 students in our programs, which include private lessons, small and large ensemble programs, instrumental band and string programs in the local schools, and a summer program featuring chamber music for young musicians.
