In-Home Lessons:  The Benefits of Studying with Scarsdale Music School Teachers

When your teacher comes to you, students and parents avoid traveling to a school or studio.  Students receive their music education in a familiar, secure, and safe environment year round, including summer instruction.  We offer morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend time slots for your convenience. Scarsdale Music School caters to each student’s musical level from serious classical training to Broadway, pop, and jazz.

Parents Are Encouraged To Be Actively Involved In Child's Education

Encouragement is important to your child’s musical education, along with a commitment to practice time. Without parental support, a child may lose interest in their instrument. At Scarsdale Music School, we want to nurture the love of music in all of our students, and parents play an important role. Please speak with teachers about practice and instructional goals so that you are aware of your student’s musical journey and how you can assist.
