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 Lesson Student Abby earned her Prodigy Trophy. She studies with Colby.

Pictured Above: Piano student Lila earned her Master Trophy. She studies with Greta.

Pictured Above: Piano student Naomi earned her Master Trophy.  She studies with Marian.

Pictured Above: Piano student Shira earned her Rock Star Wristband. She studies with Melanie.

Be on the lookout in next month’s news and on our Facebook page for more great pics of our award winning students!
