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!):

  • Beginner Group Piano
    • 11:00am – 11:30pm 
    • Using a blend of different teaching methods and materials, children learn basic piano skills in a nurturing environment with their peers.
  • Beginner Group Guitar
    • 12:00pm – 12:30pm
    • 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.
  • Buckets and Beats
    • 1:00pm – 1:30pm
    • Have fun with sticks, buckets, and household items in this inventive class. Children learn the basics of percussion and how to play the various parts of drum beats. 

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