The Prindle School is committed to inspiring you to prepare and preparing you to inspire. We are a music school in the Pioneer Valley offering private music lessons, classes, and ensembles. Our faculty have a wealth of experience delivering exactly the right program of lessons for each individual client: young children as they begin their music journey, highly dedicated professional musicians, adult learners who hope to bring more joy into their lives, and everything in between.
Dan and Michelle Prindle have over 30 years of combined experience in music education. Dan is a Ph.D. candidate in music theory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and also teaches music theory, ear training, and composition at Williams College and Keene State College. Michelle holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from the Hartt School at the University of Hartford and is a Certified Waldorf Early Childhood Educator.
The Prindle School promotes 2 annual student recitals, on-site concerts by professional musicians, and off-site concerts and masterclasses. We also promote the concerts of our instructors, who are all regular performers at venues from churches to rock clubs.
