Early Childhood Programs

Educating the heart and mind.

The study of  music has been shown to improve mental focus and cognitive functions, but perhaps even more important is that experience of music encourages compassion in the individual. At Nantucket Music Center, we believe every child should have access to music instruction, and we provide early music education opportunities to suit every family’s needs, as well as numerous free outreach programs in the public school system and at the Boys and Girls Club.
