Welcome to Winchester Community Music School

Welcome to WCMS! We have music opportunities for all ages, from toddlers to teens and young adults to seniors. We offer private lessons as well as group classes, ensembles, and music therapy. 

WCMS is a nonprofit organization serving more than 850 students from over 30 towns, including Woburn, Stoneham, Lexington, Medford, Arlington, and Burlington. With over 30 years of excellence in music education, an exceptional faculty, and a state-of-the-art facility, we provide the finest professional instruction to our students, and a world of music to our community and beyond!

  • Our faculty of more than 60 performing artists offer private lessons in a wide range of instruments and voice. Our registrar can help you find a teacher who matches your interests and goals. New students can enroll at any time and can augment their music study with lessons in composition, song writing, recording/production, or music theory.
  • We offer ensembles of every style—chamber, jazz, rock, blues, and more. Whatever your preference, whatever your instrument—be it piano or percussion, voice or viola, bass or bassoon—you can be part of an ensemble. All levels welcome, from beginner to advanced.
  • Our group classes start at 18 months old, and this year we have more children's music classes and sessions than ever, particularly for our popular Dalcroze Eurhythmics classes.

Thank you for being a part of our community!


    WCMS is the proud recipient of a 2013 "$100K for 100" grant from the Cummings Foundation. The grant will be used to support strategic planning and implementation, as well as the creation of a new staff position to lead development and communication initiatives. Overall, this will help WCMS build its capacity and outreach into the community.
