About the Instrumental and Vocal Extension Program (IVEP)

As part of the K-12 Wellesley Public Schools Music Education curriculum, the Wellesley Public School District offers students the opportunity to take private voice and instrumental music lessons. Lessons are taught after school by highly qualified professional musicians, who have demonstrated excellence in their performing and teaching.

The mission of the Instrumental and Vocal Extension (IVEP) Program of the Wellesley Public Schools is three-fold:

  •  To help students develop a life-long love of music and joyful confidence in music-making through high-quality instruction on band and orchestra instruments and voice
  • To teach a body of core musical performance skills and techniques to a mastery level, through quality vocal and instrumental repertoire
  • To prepare all students for entry into and successful participation in school ensembles, and to support continued participation in these ensembles from elementary through high school.

Learn more about the band and orchestra instruments we offer here.

Lessons are scheduled after-school, Monday through Friday. Schedules are arranged with the teachers in person, by phone, or by email. Scheduling will depend on the availability of each teacher at a mutually agreed upon time. Please see the Teacher Directory for contact information.
