From Our Website

The Brattleboro Music Center offers people of all ages the chance to not only appreciate music, but to learn, play and express themselves. Founded in 1952 by artistic director Blanche Honegger Moyse, the Brattleboro Music Center is a unique, community-based organization, exceptional for the breadth and quality of its programs. Today, under the artistic advisement of Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson, the BMC consists of numerous performance, participation, and education programs. For more than six decades, the Brattleboro Music Center has helped define southeastern Vermont as a rural region distinctive for its rich cultural life.


Since 1976, the Brattleboro Music Center's Music School has been sharing the gift of music. Today, with over 400 students, 30 dedicated and talented faculty members, and music instruction in 15 instruments and voice, the Music School continues to be at the heart of music in our community. We invite you to learn more about the Music School's LESSONS, CLASSES, and ENSEMBLES, including our student orchestras. People of all ages and abilities pursue their musical interests at the BMC. We believe music should be accessible to all who seek it and toward that goal the BMC awards more than $25,000 annually in financial aid and offers lessons for those with disabilities.


With safety protocols in place we are now offering some in person lessons. In some cases students and teachers are choosing to continue with online instruction. If you are an existing student you should be hearing from your teacher. If you are new to the BMC or have not heard from your teacher please get in touch with the office and we will be happy to assist you! The BMC Music School provides individual instruction in a variety of instruments and voice, for students of any age or ability, during its 16-week fall and spring semesters.
