Since its founding, Bay Chamber has been encouraging people of all ages, abilities and background to make music together and this fall, despite its many difficulties, is no different. Options for in-person and online lessons commence with the launch of the fall semester beginning Sept. 14, 2020. With an emphasis on creating an exceptional experience, based on total musicianship and a positive, enriching exchange between student and instructor, Bay Chamber Music School provides a dynamic environment in which musicians of every level can learn and grow though music education, practice, and performance.

The health and safety of students and staff is of the utmost priority, and staff are taking measures to ensure everyone’s security and comfort as Bay Chamber begins to offer a limited number of in-person lessons at 18 Central St. in Rockport village. In addition, private virtual lessons are available and staff endeavors to work with students to create a flexible solution that works for both student and teacher.

Bay Chamber Concerts is committed to making high quality arts education accessible and affordable to all. For scholarship and financial aid questions, please contact Executive Director Monica Kelly at
