Mission Statement

Our mission is to enrich our community through music and the arts by offering high quality music and art education,

as well as providing outstanding concerts for all in our beautiful and historic setting.

COVID-19 Response

Thayer Conservatory is taking all necessary precautions to protect our students, families and faculty from Covid-19 and is following all the guidelines recommended by the state of Massachusetts. This includes wearing masks in the building and observing six-foot distancing.

Children that have been studying virtually this spring and summer have been very successful learning in their online lessons and we have been very pleased with the progress students have been making with these virtual lessons.


Please share with your friends and neighbors that Thayer is alive and well despite Covid-19, and we look forward to new and returning students either in person or online.

Whether you like to sing or play an instrument, whether you are a beginner or an experienced performer just wanting to advance your skills, whether you are seven or seventy, we invite you to come to Thayer Conservatory to develop your musical potential.
