For more than thirty years the Instrumental Music School of Carlisle and Concord has brought the highest level of individual musical instruction to the students of Concord and Carlisle. Founded in 1980 by the Concord-Carlisle Regional School District to serve the musical needs in our communities, our distinguished faculty of professional musicians and educators provide instruction for close to 400 student musicians. Located in the towns of Concord and Carlisle, Massachusetts, classes are given at a variety of locations throughout the schools.
Whether students are beginning a new instrument or honing skills developed through many years of practice, IMSCC is dedicated to helping young musicians excel. Our teachers work one on one with students to help them develop basic skills, learn repertoire, and prepare for performances. With close ties to school music departments, IMSCC teachers are well equipped to help students prepare for ensemble playing, both in school and beyond. IMSCC graduates have gone on to conservatory programs and professional careers in music.
IMSCC offers a variety of Group Classes. Chamber Music, or small ensembles, gives students an opportunity to work intensively in small groups with an instructor. This is a valuable learning experience for students, bringing young musicians to a deeper level of musical understanding and appreciation, and often creating a life-long love of music.
IMSCC is part of Concord-Carlisle Adult & Community Education, in association with the Concord and Carlisle school music departments. We are a self-funded non-profit program.
