Band & Orchestra

...for the elementary schools of Amherst & Pelham, Massachusetts...

The Massachusetts Amherst and Pelham Elementary schools offer free orchestral instruction for students in third through sixth grades, and free band instruction for students in fourth through sixth grades. Students will receive a 30 minute group lesson, and students in 5th and 6th grade participate in a 45 minute ensemble rehearsal once weekly. We perform winter and spring concerts, during the school day and in the evening.
