Welcome Brownie Troop 40300!

More Awards for our schools!

The Harrison and New City Schools of Music were named “Best Violin Teachers in NY” and “Best Piano Teachers in NY” for the 3rd year in a row from independent rating site Expertise.com  You can read the articles here: Piano and here: Violin

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!
