Welcome back to the Fall 2020 semester at PMAC!  We’re thrilled to introduce these professionally trained and experienced teaching artists from across the United States. When we are able to safely resume all in-person teaching at our building on Islington Street, our Seacoast based teaching artists will be available for in-person teaching. At this time, our in-person classes, ensembles, and private lessons are limited, as we adhere to the local, state and national safety guidelines. We are excited to offer many online art and music education opportunities, including individual instruction. Read on to learn more about our newest teaching artists:
