In 1964, the Music Committee of the Belmont Community Center sponsored Belmont's first Piano Festival and enrolled 12 recorder students. Today, with the same heart and spirit of the original founders, Powers Music School annually touches the lives of more than 5,000 people.
The founding principles, that all students are entitled to high quality musical instruction and that music is an essential part of our lives, continue to guide the School today. Our classes and lessons help students learn critical thinking and fine motor skills, build self-confidence, work on a team, devote themselves to their passion, excel in school and in life, laugh, and become the people they are meant to be.
Powers Music School provides the community with access to the highest caliber of music education programs, a nurturing and talented faculty, and outreach programs that foster a lifelong appreciation of music. Powers offers superior instruction and performance opportunities for interested students of all ages, in the belief that everyone has the potential to participate in, enjoy, create, and develop a lasting love of music.
Powers Music School aims to be one of the region's premier resources for providing joyful music education experiences that promote artistic excellence. Powers envisions that all of its programs will be given in easily accessible, attractive and comfortable spaces that enable maximum musical enjoyment by both participants and audience members alike.
