Newsletters as Insight

Newsletters are one of the best ways to view the School’s impact over several years.  While our budget is tuition driven, much of what we accomplish is a result of donor and grantor gifts.

Pakachoag is fortunate to have a steady stream of supporters.  Many of our donors are former parents; some are event attendees.

Earning a reputation for excellence in community music education and as one of New England’s best music school’s is entirely a result of all who support our work.

Community Arts & Music

Pakachoag Music School is an active member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education.  Much of our work highlighted in our school newsletters responds to trends in music education.  That includes considering both local needs and national trends pushing the field forward.
