Summer Music for Kids

Summer Music for Kids is a newly incorporated Vermont Domestic Non-profit Corporation formed by local musicians in the Rochester/Stockbridge area. We are happy to announce that beginning with the summer of 2022 we will be offering music lessons, at no cost to students, for all students who will be entering 5th or 6th grade in the Rochester, Stockbridge, Hancock and Granville area in the fall of 2022. Home-schooled students are definitely included.

Lessons will take place at the Rochester Elementary School on Wednesday mornings, June 22 and 29, July 6, 20 and 27, and August 3rd. Each student will receive an individual lesson, followed by a group Enrichment session, and then an attempt for the students to play together. Instruments will be provided, as necessary, to students, at no cost to the student.

All the students will be given nutritious snacks – on arrival, after the individual lesson, and just before leaving for home at around noon.

Our expert instrumental music teachers are: Scott Paulson (percussion, trumpet, trombone), Barbara Smith (Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone), and Emily Sunderman (violin and cello).

Our Enrichment teachers include Holly Mugford Bermingham and Ethan Bowen among others.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for young students to learn to play a musical instrument – at no cost to the student or the student’s family.

For more information, send an email to summermusicforkids@gmail.com or talk to Susan Bushnell (Rochester 802-280-5010) or Bill Edgerton (Stockbridge 802-234-5106)

Early Registration will begin January 15th and forms will be distributed through the schools or through email or telephone contact.
