Hoff-Barthelson Music School
Hoff-Barthelson Music School, Westchester's premier community music school, was founded in 1944 by Virginia Hoff and Joyce Barthelson, two gifted musicians who believed that the joy of music and the skills to perform it should be available to everyone. They left a legacy that has touched the lives of many thousands: a warm, friendly music school dedicated to the highest standards of music education, performance, and community service for students of all ages.
A commitment to creativity, collaboration, and community animates Hoff-Barthelsonís holistic approach to music education, which is characterized by: a supportive musical environment; a focus on the whole student; customized learning; exceptional teaching; and a multifaceted curriculum.
Once enrolled for music lessons, all students gain complimentary access to a comprehensive program that includes musicianship classes in theory, ear training and composition; ensemble opportunities including wind, vocal and jazz ensembles, a multi-tiered orchestra program, and chamber music; and myriad performance opportunities. Students also benefit from master classes, workshops, and coachings with world renowned guest artists and members of the New York Philharmonic, with which the School has partnered for more than 20 years.
Whatever a studentís age or level of musical interest, Hoff-Barthelsonís diverse offerings provide the highest quality musical education, personally tailored to his or her specific passions and goals in a supportive and vibrant community.
Enrollment is ongoing throughout the year.
