Welcome to AEM!

Amherst Early Music is the largest presenter of Early Music workshops in North America. We create learning opportunities for amateur and pre-professional students to study with leading musicians in the field of Early Music. In addition to online classes, we present the Amherst Early Music Festival at Muhlenberg College in July, and several in-person workshops during the year.
