The Music Program is characterized by a diversity of experiences. We provide students with opportunities in Music History and Theory, Vocal and Instrumental Performance, as well as in Songwriting and Music Production. A student-centered approach to curricular planning ensures that students are provided with academic and extra-curricular opportunities of varying lengths and credit options to better meet each student’s individual needs and interests. Students have the opportunity to perform both on campus and in local venues such as the Monadnock Valley Music Festival and the All State Music Festival. Recent graduates have gone on to study music at the Northwestern Bienen School of Music, Berklee College of Music, and Loyola University New Orleans.

In addition to the courses we offer during the academic day, vocal performance ensembles, Dubliners Chorus and Choir, meet in an evening class block, making the opportunity more widely available to students with schedule constraints. It is a great way to re-energize prior to evening studies.

beyond the Classroom 

Extra-Curricular opportunities, including Music Creation Club and Private Music Lessons, are also an important part of our program, and they are open to students and adult members in our community of all abilities.

Solo guitar and vocal performance at Coffeehouse


The spring Mayfair Weekend Coffeehouse is one of the most loved traditions at Dublin School, and features many members our community taking to the stage to perform their favorite songs in an epic evening of vocal and instrumental favorites.
Informal open mic nights and open recording studio events are scheduled throughout the year so that students can share their music with each other.
