Celebrating a milestone year never sounded so good! The Music Conservatory of Westchester invites the Westchester County community to a 90th Anniversary Kick-Off and Open House at its White Plains location on Saturday, October 5 from 11am through 3pm. The event will offer free demo classes and will showcase Conservatory student performances representing an array of musical genres, while sharing in the joy of making music for 90 years.

Attendees will experience first-hand the magic that occurs within the Conservatory’s walls. Explore the variety of musical ensembles and performance opportunities offered at the Conservatory while attending the Anniversary Kick-Off and Open House, and enjoy impressive, entertaining student performances. An immersive musical instrument petting zoo will also bring youngsters up-close to some of the many instruments offered for lessons at the nonprofit community music school.

Demo group classes will be available for the following popular introductory classes (no musical experience necessary!):

  • First Notes (ages 3 months through 3 ½ years)
    • This is a class for toddlers and parents that teaches music fundamentals and concepts in a fun, interactive way. Songs and musical activities develop the child’s sense of hearing, sight, and touch in response to music.
  • Pre-School Music Skills (age 3-4)
    • Students learn the fundamentals of rhythm, melody and harmony through ear training, creative movement, songs and improvisation. Pre-K Music Skills offers a perfect entry point for your child’s musical education, helping prepare him/her to learn an instrument.
  • Beginner Group Piano (kindergarten through grade 1)
    • Using a blend of different teaching methods and materials, children learn basic piano skills in a nurturing environment with their peers.
  • Beginner Group Guitar (kindergarten through grade 1)
    • Strong basic playing skills provide a foundation for students to learn classical, jazz, or rock when they reach more advanced levels, and to participate in a rock band, jazz combo or guitar ensemble. Working with their peers in the early stages helps foster the collaborative spirit necessary to make music with others.

What a fun way to celebrate music and the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s 90th anniversary!
