MAS (Music After School)

In March 2015, we founded MAS (Music After School) at MA through the generous support of the Grant Martin Memorial Fund honoring Grant’s musicianship.

MAS continues to be sustained through the Tristan Witte ’14 Memorial Scholarship Fund, which honors Tristan’s creativity and talent as a musician and scholar. MAS at MA brings the excellence of our music program to a wider community of MA students and enhances our current offerings to include weekly private, duo, and small group lessons. These offerings allow students to hone their technique on their instrument or to learn a new instrument. The classes have a place for all students, from the beginner to the serious musician. We offer classes with high level teachers and the convenience to study music after school right here at MA.

The fall eight-week session begins September 8 and ends November 2. All lessons are one hour, once per week except some half hour piano lessons.

Will all of the classes run?

Group classes require a minimum of 3 students to run. We also have a maximum of 8 students for most group classes. It is possible that your class may be full this time or may not have enough students to run. There is a place on the sign up form to list second or third choice of class if your first choice isn’t available. We will let you know the status of your class by e-mail by August 30.


If your teacher has to cancel a class due to illness you will be notified and, if the teacher cannot arrange a mutually agreeable make-up lesson, refunded for that day. If you miss a class there is no refund. For private lessons, your teacher may be able to arrange a make-up time for you but there is no guarantee.
