    Roxbury's Applied Music Program is one of the most celebrated afterschool programs in the region. Blessed with award-winning music educators offering world-class instruction, the program nurtures local talent, empowering students to pursue careers in entertainment well after graduation.

    This is a district-wide program that provides a high-quality enhancement to classroom instruction. Teachers are all specialists on their instrument or vocal specialty. All of our teachers are trained professional musicians and highly qualified in their instrument of expertise. Private study is extremely valuable to the individual student and highly encouraged. Private study is offered as enrichment, NOT remedial instruction. It is encouraged for the complete development of each students' potential as a performing musician and/or artist.

    As teachers, we are grateful for the value you as parents place on your child’s music education. We are writing to share with you some of the ways you can help encourage your child’s success in their musical endeavors. If your child is currently playing in an ensemble but has never studied his or her particular instrument with a specialist, we hope you will consider private lessons.

    Once the form and registration fee are received, you will be assigned a weekly lesson time. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate your choice of instructor, but schedules fill up quickly and you might be assigned to another great instructor in that field.

    Thank you for your interest!
