The conservatory has become my son's musical home. Ever since he started on the recorder at age 6, the conservatory and it's staff has encouraged, nutured and directed his progress through individual lessons, musical education and ensemble performance. I see the conservatory's continuing mission of community clearly, as my son, now 14, begins to encourage new young musicians in the same manner he was encourage at the start. The conservatory is simply a wonderful place for all to experience the arts.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give the gift of music and the arts to so many more children and ensure its presence for another 80 years.

The Music Conservatory of Westchester is unlike any music, theater, or dance school you've ever seen. The faculty's philosophy is to nurture each and every student, no matter their age or ability level. They believe that everyone deserves a chance to make music. The faculty - in every instrument, plus voice - is eager to teach students from beginners to virtuosos. Integrity, superlative quality, and dedication are the hallmarks of this legendary nonprofit institution. Students' experiences are enhanced by the remarkable Conservatory facility. There are many universities that would be delighted to have such large, well-lit, brightly colored studios. And as soon as you enter the school's doors, the lobby's vibrant, warm colors welcome you as though you were family. The school's beautiful Recital Hall provides students with added motivation to master their repertoire. Regular performance opportunities, in a first-class concert space, plus remarkable, nurturing teachers, make the Music Conservatory of Westchester unique in the field of community schools of music nationwide.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending student recitals, attending benefits and fundraising events, working with the Board and parents of students.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

every dollar earned and raised is spent wisely, and is evidenced by the enjoyment each student derives from his or her experience there.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

first class and dedicated beyond the call of duty.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

lower its tuition and provide more scholarships to students who wish to participate in music education.

The Music Conservatory of Westchester has been our music school for over 11 years. My son has had the same excellent piano teacher over the years and has had some amazing experiences including playing piano at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. My younger son also started taking piano lessons last year and is thriving. Another great aspect of the school, in addition to its great faculty and superior facility, is the wonderful outreach programs which it provides.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how my children have grown as musicians. I have also been involved in raising money for the outreach programs at the Conservatory.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with the excellent faculty and staff and meeting others who love and appreciate music.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
