A Note from our Director, Wendy Webster Ardizzone

We invite you to celebrate summertime making music and making friends at Joy of Music.  Summer is an ideal time to build on what you are already doing in music or to start something new.  In putting together the summer schedule we are  mindful that many students come to JOMP after camp and  work.  Classes and ensembles meet for 7 weeks unless otherwise noted.   We are happy to accommodate family vacations in scheduling and billing private lessons, provided you tell us in advance which week(s) you’ll be away so teachers can plan their schedules.

Joy of Music’s original purpose of giving young children a joyful and solid foundation for life-long musical growth is still at the heart of the vital and thriving community music school that now serves people of all ages.  Whether you are a beginner or have been playing for many years, being a student at JOMP means being part of a warm and supportive community of students and teachers.  Our outstanding faculty is dedicated to helping you develop the skills that will enable you to express yourself through music, whatever your personal goals may be.  Music also gives us a powerful way of connecting with each other.   The school has been described as a magnet, whose dynamic energy draws students from Worcester and over 50 surrounding cities and towns, creating a community of students that reflects the rich diversity of the greater Worcester area.  We hope you will make music and JOMP an important part of your summer!
