I Want to Play

At NEC Prep, young musicians can explore all kinds of instruments. We offer brass, percussion, woodwinds, strings, and piano from early childhood on. Whether it's classical, jazz, rock, or world music, you'll get to explore music that moves you.

There are as many approaches to meaningful musical education at NEC Prep as there are students. No two paths are exactly alike, and your student can enter at any level of training. Older beginners generally start with lessons on an instrument and/or any of our foundation classes. Because our offerings are à la carte, you can map out a unique learning experience. Students can choose to enroll in just one activity—ensembles, lessons, classes—or any combination thereof, and move at their own pace.

The application for the 2020-2021 Large Ensemble Auditions is now available! Please visit the Spring Auditions page.
