About Boston School of Music Arts
The Adams-Lower Mills Dorchester, Mattapan and Milton area has a rich musical tradition. A private music school has not existed since the early 20th century in this area, however the Boston School of Music Arts offers a new and fresh take on community-oriented music education.

As a student family, you receive the best in new approaches, not gimmicks, to learning music in a fun, yet technically sound way. Starting with ages 18 months - we offer classes that actually develop a love of music, solid technique and theory to have a strong understanding of the language of music -- and fun expressing it! Private lessons, group music lessons for children and adults 3 1/2 and up, and our RockskoolTM really get the conversation going! The benefits of music education overall are well-proven. We make that happen. We give parents the knowledge to support their child's journey with us.

MUSIC IS A GROUP SPORT, and that is the heart of BSMA's music performance instruction and ensemble activities. This includes: Band classes, string ensemble class, vocal ensemble classes, music theory, professional performance workshops, guest artist workshops, and special summer programs – all for beginners through professionals.

Choosing a music school for you or your child is a very personal decision. We hope that you will find out more, and help your child epress their own music. We hope to meet you soon.

7.  Fun, all-inclusive music recitals, and other performance opportunities.

Every January and June, our students have the option of performing in our recitals. Students are not required to perform, but many choose to. We also offer other opportunities throughout the year for all students - from some of our youngest to our adult students, to perform. From local venues to destination performances, there are plenty of opportunities to use new music skills, as they develop.

​Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.​

9. Medals, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.

Students in our program earn progress-based certificates to acknowledge major achievements completing key levels of skill, in playing music, reading and creating.

We are also the only music school in Boston that has its own copyrighted curriculum, including graduations, with certificates at different levels of competency. We are also the only music school in this area that gives their students the opportunity to earn special levels of achievement through the patented Musical Ladder system - including color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), medals, and trophies passing musical tests and levels. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them great options for earning their way up as they grow musically.

10. Month to Month lessons.

Boston School of Music & Creative Arts does not require semester or yearly minimums for lessons. Students study here are on a month-to-month basis. Billing occurs monthly. Most children who are with us for years, start as absolute beginners, and go on to college, some become doctors, or attorneys. Many others graduate from music colleges like Berklee, Julliard, and more. Our Adults often approach this as a hobby, which then evolves into a rewarding journey performing music.

If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
