    Anita is awesome along with her music staff. They are exceptional musicians, all kind, patient and very knowledgeable in their field of music expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend them for lessons in the music field of your choice. My daughter is taking drum lessons with Dylan, who is in a band and working on his masters in music, so these teachers are very experienced people. She enjoys his lessons and learns a lot each and every time. She comes out with a smile after each lesson because she gets better and better each time.

    Anita and the teachers are amazing! They really try to teach you in way that you would understand. My kids took guitar lessons there with no former guitar knowledge whatsoever. They make you feel so comfortable, I started taking voice lessons myself. Keep in mind that I am 30 years old and completely tone deaf. I love Anita and her teachers and hope to continue to grownwith them.

    Anita and the Music Elements staff are very personable and make you feel like part of their "music family".
    My daughter takes vocal lessons there and she enjoys going, which is great!!

    We were looking for some advanced lessons for my son who has been learning Drums for a few years.

    Anita was very personable and returned my calls promptly to explain the school, class structure, fee etc.

    I was most looking for flexible time schedule, and she was able to find the time that best worked for us!

    Most importantly, instructor is great and my son has started to get back in the rhythm of practice and getting challenged enough to keep his interest on. So far great!

    Overall, our experience is great with Music Elements!

  • 5/5 stars

    I have three children taking lessons at Music Elements.
    It has been a great experience for all them. Anita's warm and friendly way adds to the overall experience. As a busy mother I appreciate when someone goes out of their to make the schedule as easy and manageable as possible. I would absolutely recommend Music Elements!

  • 5/5 stars

    My son is taking both vocal and guitar lessons. He is loving his sessions and learning a lot. He looks forward to his lessons every week (really).
    When evaluating Music Elements, Annita took the time to meet with me and view the teaching rooms so that I would feel comfortable. She also took the time to listen to what we were looking for for our son and paired us with an instructor that was a great fit.
    I highly recommend Music Elements!

    I loved going to see Laura at Anita's home. I was completely comfortable there. Laura is extremely knowledgeable and fun as well :). A wonderful musical experience.

    Although my journey is just beginning and there is still much to learn Ive noticed already that I've applied new singing techniques and my confidence level is increasing. Thanks Laura!

    My daughter Sun Venkat has been learning vocal lessons from Music Elements for the past 2 years and she is enjoying it to the core. She loves Naomi's teaching, guidance and Anita's caring nature. Every year she enjoys the Annual Recital and she was overthrilled to join the July 4th parade last year. God bless Music Elements; strongly recommend to any one who wants to learn music.

  • 5/5 stars

    Both my son and I were students at Music elements. My son was instructed by Dylan for drum lessons and I took voice lessons. The facility was neat and clean and the instructors were very professional and knowledgeable. Additionally, they were very flexible with their scheduling to accommodate my buys lifestyle. I would recommend Music Elements to the novice or advanced learner.

    I found out about Music Elements from my co-worker whose parent works there and I am so glad that I go there. My teacher is John and he teaches me piano and voice but he knows so much more. He's teaching me to really understand music and listen to the chords which is something that is hard for some people to do but he really helps me with it. Right now he is teaching me how to keep rhythm by tapping some beats which is really helpful for the song I'm learning to play. Also the songs that he teaches me to play, he also teaches me to sing which is extremely helpful. I love being there and I can't wait to keep learning from him.

    Very personable and efficient in communicating and responding to special requests. My instructor is very capable, qualified, informative and most of all patient interacting with me, someone with minimal musical background.

  • 5/5 stars

    Music Elements is a wonderful place for your child to have music lessons! Anita and all of the teachers are very friendly and professional and the atmosphere is warm and safe. I would recommend Music Elements to any parent. My son has mild Autism and plays the trumpet in his middle school band. Before my son started taking lessons at Music Elements, he was starting to fall behind the other band students and he was really feeling frustrated. mys son has lessons twice a week at Music Elements with two teachers, Peter and John. Both teachers have been extremely patient with my son and accommodating of his learning needs. I have watched my son improve musically and gain more confidence in his trumpet ability since starting lessons at this school. I am so thankful to the staff at Music Elements for all they do.

    I have always found Music Elements and Anita Connerty to be professional, knowledgeable and also makes learning music a joy. My daughter has been going to take voice & guitar lessons for a few years and her voice is developing tremendously. Certainly would have no hesitation in referring them as they are a great music school here in Chelmsford.!

    Since joining Music Elements, my daughter has reconnected with her love for the piano, practices more often without proding and plays pieces that inspire her! We are thrilled with something so close and able to accommodate both of our children as well with there mutlple music rooms and teachers. They are truly a treasure chest of great teachers and people!

    I enrolled my daughter in vocal lessons with Naomi Gillies at Music Elements and she loves it! The atmosphere is casual which makes my daughter feel comfortable and she enjoys going. Naomi is extremely talented and experienced. Enrolling my daughter at Music Elements was definitely the right choice for us.

    Anita is a wonderful person, as well as a very talented musician. She has gone above and beyond to help me out on more than one occasion. My daughter, Jackie, has been taking vocal lessons at Music Elements for over a year, and she has also taken piano lessons with Jamie. Jackie just started with a new vocal teacher, Naomi, and she absolutely loves her! Naomi is an amazing singer and really makes the lesson fun. I can't say enough about her. Jamie is also an amazing teacher. He is extremely talented and works very well with people of all ages. Anita always has exceptional teachers on staff. I highly recommend Music Elements to anyone!

    Anita is a great teacher and an amazing person She is surrounded with exceptional colleagues who make the music experience at the school a unique one. My son started taking drum lessons at age 5 with Jesse and everybody we know is amazed at his progress over the years. Patience,encouragement and bringing out the best out of you is what caracterizes the instructors at Music Elements. Jesse and Anita went above and beyond for my son to fulfill his dream,providing evreything he needed to be able to play the drums. Music elements is not only a school, it's a family. Thanks Anita,Jane, Jesse and all the instructors!

    Anita is a caring and very talented person that offers so much for any student that wants to learn an instrument

  • 5/5 stars

    My son has been a student at Music Elements for five years. He started with electric guitar and is now on piano. Anita is absolutely wonderful with the students. She is kind and warm and a great musician to boot! We have had the privilege of working with Brett on guitar and Jamie on piano. My son loves both instruments and enjoys his weekly lessons. For the price and quality of instruction, you can't go wrong!

    My daughter, Grace, has taken piano lessons at Musics Elements for the past 3 years. We couldn't be happier! Jamie Lonto has been her instructor and he absolutely knows how to make lessons fun and how to connect with kids of all ages. He was so smart to find out what music she would like instead of just having her play one style of music. I have several friends who have taken voice and guitar there as well and have loved it. The recitals certainly show how enthusiastic and dedicated Anita and her whole staff are at teaching and celebrating music! I highly recommend Music Elements!

  • 5/5 stars

    We've been going to Anita's school for over 2 years now, for piano and guitar, and are very very happy with the experience. Anita and the teachers are friendly, warm, experienced and the atmosphere is low-key and homey. Everyone is so flexible and that has been enormously important to us as the kids change their schedules, get sick, etc. We love that the emphasis is on learning an instrument and not an all-consuming RECITAL (although there is one). This place has been a great experience for us.

  • 5/5 stars

    Anita is doing a wonderful thing for the community in opening up her home to music lessons. She is easy to work with because of her warm and friendly personality. She is always quick to respond to emails and phone calls which I really appreciate. And I find it a privilege to work for such a wonderful person.

  • 5/5 stars

    Music Elements is fantastic. My son has been taking drum lessons there for 2 months. They have taken his love of drums and built on it. He now feels successful in how he is playing and is learning new things every week. His instructor is wonderful and made an effort to learn my son's strengths and weaknesses. This makes for very satisfying lessons. They go at the pace my son sets so he does not feel like it is tedious but fun. Music Elements was recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to learn more and enjoy music.

  • 5/5 stars

    A great experience all around! After I told Anita a little bit about my son, she helped me to find just the right teacher for him - their personalities are a great fit. My son loves to go to lessons. He's been taking them from Neal for about 6 months now and is doing really well. We've had to cancel/change lessons a couple of times and they have been very understanding, very flexible. The price is affordable. No complaints at all.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Music Elements is committed to a joyful music experience that enriches the life of the student while providing a broad foundation in all the technical aspects of music. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, child, adult, or jumping back in after years of not playing, we will teach you to play at a pace that's appropriate for you. At Music Elements our goal is not only to teach an instrument, but also to show each student how to make studying music enjoyable. We tailor instruction to your musical interests.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Music Elements is conveniently located in the Center of Chelmsford with very little traffic for travel.

Our instructors are professional musicians and have years of both teaching and performance experience.

Our instructors are college graduates majoring in music and music education. The colleges include Berklee College of Music, Smith McNally, UMass Amherst & UMass Lowell.

We have yearly recitals at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts and provide a "state of the art" light show!
The recital venue has a stage so the children experience a live performance experience and the piano students perform on a Steinway Piano.

We make sure that our students are “matched” with an instructor that they can connect with. This is very important for the students musical learning experience.
Most of our instructors teach more than one instrument so if a student does not feel a connection with their instructor, we have others to chose from.

The cost for our lessons are fair and there are no contracts to sign.

I hope this helps explain why we are proud to have had over 500 students cross our door step in the past 20 years!
