Why Continuing Education?

Because it’s good for you.

Study after study confirms the myriad health benefits of hands-on music making: lowering blood pressure, releasing endorphins, improving executive function. Whatever your level, you’ll experience the focus and flow, the connection and release of playing music.

I look forward to this every week...

I can't believe how different my playing has become.

Because NEC is a great place to study music.

We’ve got something for all experience levels, all instruments, all genres. (We’ll help you find the right fit.) With stellar faculty who make the most of your time making music and the unique exchange of working with other musicians, it’s lifelong learning at its best.

This takes you a huge step above being an amateur.
