Celebrating Student Achievement - The Musical Ladder System®

The Harrison and New City School of Music are the only music schools in Westchester and Rockland Counties that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
 

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!

Pictured Above: Piano Student Hudson earned his Rockstar (1 Year) Trophy & Wristband.. He studies with Dan.
Pictured Above: Flute Student Ellie earned her Champion (4 Year) Trophy & Wristband. She studies with Kate.
Pictured Above: Violin Student Nora earned her Apprentice (3 Month) Wristband.  She studies with Emily.
Pictured Above: Piano Student Matthew earned his Rockstar (1 Year) Trophy. He studies with Jared.
Be on the lookout in next month's news and on our Facebook & Instagram pages for more great pics of our award winning students!

To learn more about how the system can help your child to get better grades, improved confidence, and self esteem and more, please email us at office@harrisonmusicschool.com or office@newcitymusicschool.com

PET OF THE MONTH
 
Meet Orpheus, our Violin teacher Emily's newly adopted rescue kitten. Orpheus is 12 weeks old, and loves snuggling and playing with ping pong balls. His favorite composer (so far) is George Gershwin, and he loves to walk over the piano keys in his home to invent his own music. 

Email us a picture of you and your pet and a brief story about your pet, and you could be chosen as our next pet of the month! If you are chosen, you'll receive a $25 retail credit to use towards books or musical supplies at the school!
