Founded in 1940 by Winnie Davis Long Crane, the Berkshire Music School is dedicated to fostering the love and pursuit of music for all ages through quality music education activities, community collaborations, and performance opportunities. This year, Berkshire Music School celebrates 80 years of service to the community by providing quality education in music, and musical opportunities to people in the greater Berkshire community, regardless of race, sex, religion, ethnic origin, age, or disability. The school serves more than 250 students taking weekly lessons from more than 35 professional musician/educator faculty members.

Additionally, BMS provides numerous classes, chamber ensembles, workshops, and special series for students of all ages. BMS also hosts a variety of collaborations with other cultural organizations, social service agencies, and senior centers as well as recitals, concerts, and residencies at venues across the county.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Berkshire Music School expanded its programs to include both private and group learning opportunities online as well as in-person on its historic Pittsfield campus. Honoring its founder’s legacy BMS has need-based financial assistance and generous work-study opportunities available for all its programs, and turns no one away on account of inability to pay. Berkshire Music School is a member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts.
