Preparatory Opens Campus in Frederick

In partnership with the YMCA of Frederick County, the Peabody Preparatory has opened a new campus in Frederick, Maryland, this fall. Peabody Preparatory teachers are now offering private lessons in violin, viola, cello, flute, guitar, piano, and voice at the Y Arts Center, a 20,000-square-foot hub for creativity in the heart of downtown Frederick, for students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels.

“The performing arts scene in Frederick is vibrant and growing,” notes Maria Mathieson, executive director of the Peabody Preparatory. “From beginner-level instruction to professional performance series, the community’s interest in the musical arts is clear. We’re thrilled to partner with the YMCA of Frederick County to further enhance local offerings and provide the highest level of artistic training to string students in Frederick and the surrounding area.”

With multiple campus locations—in Baltimore, Towson, Annapolis, and Howard County—the Peabody Preparatory currently serves about 2,000 students with private lessons, group classes, and structured programs in instrumental, vocal, and dance instruction.
