Music Conservatory of Westchester

Developing the next generation of movers and shakers!

Welcome to

The Music Conservatory of Westchester (MCW)!

We are a not-for-profit music school dedicated to providing high quality music instruction for all generations of musicians and music lovers in our community.

From Pre-K through retirement MCW harnesses the transformative power of music and brings it to life for all our students. How? Through creativity, teamwork, and inspiration. The result is confidence… confidence to play an instrument, confidence to sing, confidence to share your musical joy with others, and confidence to create your own unique musical journey.


Our Mission is to provide the extraordinary benefits of music to all in our community.

Music takes commitment and our commitment has been visible for over 93 years. MCW has been an asset not only for the communities we serve, but for the thousands of families and students who have entrusted us to expand their passion for music and take it to new heights!

We support our students and families every step of the way; from matching each student to the right teacher, to scholarships for qualifying students because we believe music education should be available to every student, to programs for those with disabilities provided by our Music Therapy Institute.

What does

MCW Offer?


We take an individualized approach to each student’s learning needs and style. We encourage students to choose an instrument they love and to stick with it. MCW faculty make connections with each student and are deeply vested in their success – this is what sets MCW apart!

Everyone at MCW – students, faculty, and staff – consider the Conservatory a home away from home. You’ll feel it as soon as you enter the building. Acquaintances have become friends, and friends have become extended family. All are welcome here, and it shows!
MCW is one of only two community music schools in New York state accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. This accreditation holds us to a national standard, which is reflected in the quality of our programs and faculty.
MCW has a range of programs for every musical interest. Aspiring classical virtuosos, rock stars, musical theatre performers, we’ve got you covered! We offer instrumental instruction, various group classes and performing ensembles for all ages. MCW Prep and Recording Engineering and Music production are firsts for Westchester, creating new ways for our students to challenge themselves.
