About Our School

Founded in 1968 and located in Dobbs Ferry NY, Hudson River School of Music serves the Westchester County area of New York State. HRSM was one of the first schools in the Northeast to offer instruction by teachers trained in the Suzuki method of musical education.

Our Program

Our program, which takes place after school from September through June, follows the internationally recognized Suzuki method.  All students learn the same pieces, starting with variations on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and moving slowly into more difficult works, each carefully chosen piece serving as a building block for future learning. Upon enrollment, each student is evaluated and placed in an appropriate level by the Director of the school. 

Support HRSM

As a nonprofit cooperative school, HRSM depends on the generous support of its community.

"Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart."
