Instrumental Music and Dance at Cambridge Friends School
Cambridge Friends School is delighted to offer individual and group instruction on a variety of musical instruments. Students in Elementary School and Middle School may take individual lessons on recorder, piano, flute, clarinet, and saxophone. Group lessons are offered for students as young as Kindergarten in African Drumming, World Dance is available for students in grades 2 and up, and Jazz Band is available for Middle School students with at least two years of experience in their chosen instrument.
Instrumental music and dance lessons can be taken during the school day or after school, Drum and Dance classes meet after school, and Middle School ensembles meet on days that no athletics are scheduled, ensuring that students do not need to choose between athletics and the arts. While Instrumental Music and Dance lessons incur an additional fee above tuition, financial assistance is available for all students who qualify for tuition financial aid.
