I love JOMP. I went to JOMPathon January 29th 2011. The atmosphere was happy and warm. I knew I would learn music here. I started taking trumpet lessons from Jerry Sabatini in February 2011. This has been so rewarding and has enriched my life. You feel very comfortable and at home in JOMP. It is a wonderful place to come and learn music from some of the best teachers and performers in New England. I also volunteer and attend most events put on by JOMP.

My kids have gone to Jomp. I started sax lessons as an adult at Jomp. My daughter's week is not complete without her orchestra practice at Jomp. My week is not complete without my Jazz ensemble at Jomp. The instructers are unbelievable and supporting. A GEM IN WORCESTER!!

JOMP has been a blessing in my son's life. As a parent I knew I wanted my child to be involved in a music program as I had grown up with music and had attended college as a music major myself. My son started music and movement classes at five and has been there ever since. Now a senior in high school my son studies with Rich Ardizzone who is patient, kind and interested in his life, not just giving him a trombone lesson. His dedication is indicative of the commitment I see in the staff at JOMP. I have also been fortunate to receive financial aid from JOMP. Their interest never seems to be in profit, but from enriching the lives of their students and the community through music.

I have been involved with the Joy of Music Program for 14 years as a parent of a student, a beginning adult student, and a board member. I have the greatest respect for this organization. JOMP is truly a community music school accessible to all regardless of age, income and ability through JOMP's outreach, student and faculty performances, and the financial aid program. The school is run with great care and dedication. It matches teacher to student and selects teachers based not only on their talent but on their ability to nurture, encourage and adapt to each student's needs. Central Massachusetts is fortunate to have this wonderful school that not only develops great musicians but also teaches the love of music.

In 2001 we were in search of a saxophone instructor for my son, an aspiring young musician. JOMP was recommended to us. My son took private saxophone and jazz instruction at JOMP throughout his entire high school career, working primarily with Jim Allard and Jerry Sabatini. He enjoyed working with these and many of the other talented instructors at JOMP. During that time my son was selected to play in the MMEA Sr. Central District Jazz band twice, in his sophomore and senior years of high school. He went on to major in music in college and during the summer months has partipated in JOMP's alumni programs. JOMP is a very well run music school with excellent and inspiring instructors and outstanding program leadership. We continue to support JOMP every year with their Annual Fund, used to provide music instruction scholarships. I highly recommend JOMP and support and admire their service to community.

The Great!

I've been involved with JOMP since I was five or six years old -- first through music and movement, then chorus, then private piano and flute lessons and various ensembles. I can honestly say that very few things were more central to my growth than JOMP was. The chamber orchestra, especially, was a great thing for me throughout high school - it was a privilege to be able to play fantastic repertoire at Mechanics Hall twice a year. I think what sets JOMP apart from other music programs is the faculty... there's a ridiculously high concentration of teachers who are really exceptional musicians and people who care so much about imparting their love of music to their students.

I have two children who are study at JOMP, my son studies clarinet for about 4 years, my daughter started to take cello lessons last September. My children love their teachers, they leanred so much in such short period. This is such a nice program to teach music, and both of them made great progress. I also have been impressed by other students every time attending their recitals. I feel so fortunate to have a great music school in our community

I have been a student at the Joy of Music Program for over 5 years now. I have taken private violin lessons, and have been a member of the Joy of Music Chamber Orchestra, as well as many different string ensembles. I have loved every minute of my time there. I love the fact that JOMP is such a welcoming community of musicians. I will be graduating from high school this year but look forward to coming back to JOMP as an alumni! I hope to major in violin performance or music theory/compostition in college.

This is an amazing organization. I'm an adult who studied classical music as a young person. After 30 years away from playing music, I decided to pick it up again by taking jazz lessons. The school welcomed me with open arms, and for the last three years, any evening I spend playing music there during a lesson or ensemble is truly the best night of my week. The instructors not only play at the highest professional levels, they pass on their own joy of music with expertise and patience. It's wonderful to see this kind of learning experience available to both young and old. Great facility, great staff, great community music school.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing students performances and recitals. Walking down a hallway hearing a fantastic range of music come from behind closed doors. Listening to young students perform during recitals - with talent and joyous enthusiasm at all levels of ability.
