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: Violin Student Risako earned her Rockstar Trophy. She studies with Emily.


PPictured Above: Drum Student Jahlon earned his Songbird Trophy. He studies with Andrew.


Pictured Above: Guitar Student Nick earned his Rockstar Trophy. He studies with Nick.

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
