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!
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.
Come join the MCW family for an unforgettable experience…
and let’s make some noise!
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!
