For the Love of Music

The MSW offers professional instruction to children and adults in all instruments as well as theory, composition, voice and acting.

Since its creation in 1983, the MSW has become one of the finest music institutions in Westchester and has taught thousands of students from both the local community and more than 50 other countries. Its faculty includes over 35 dedicated teachers, all prominent artists.

The facilities of the Music School of Westchester- conveniently located in Larchmont between New Rochelle and Mamaroneck, next to Rye, Scarsdale, Harrison and White Plains – offer a superb setting for enjoyable music lessons. Each practice room is equipped with a new piano and the recital hall with 2 new grand Steinways.

The MSW is a not for profit organization welcoming students of any race, color, gender and national origin.

Music School vs Private Teacher at Home

Studying music in an academic setting gives students the advantage of having access to a large and professional faculty. It gives them the opportunity to learn according to a progressive curriculum and to be evaluated periodically by the standards of the school.

In addition, a school gives the opportunity to play in ensembles, which encourages cooperation and develops music sensibility. Performing and attending recitals gives them a chance to discover the classical repertory and introduces them to other instruments. It is also important to mention that a child is more receptive and less easily distracted in a school environment than at home.
