About The Prindle School

The Prindle School is a music school in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts offering private music lessons, classes, and ensembles. We have three convenient locations:

123 Union St., Suite 301 in Easthampton, MA
31 Campus Plaza Rd. in Hadley, MA
221 Pine St., Suite 130 in Florence, MA

We also offer online REMOTE LESSONS to English-speaking students worldwide!  Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently only offering remote lessons, but we are still accepting new students to begin right away.  When we return to on-site in-person lessons, you would have the option to continue with remote lessons, switch to in-person lessons, or develop a blended approach that uses both types of lessons.

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.
