Cancelled: Musical Explorers

This program has been cancelled for 2020.

Has your third grader ever wondered what it would be like to play an instrument? 

NEC Prep provides a nine-week Musical Explorers program designed to help students learn more about music. We welcome any current third grade students who are Boston residents and interested in exploring music. No experience necessary!

This year’s class of Explorers will discover the double bass, trumpet and trombone.
