We work hard to keep tuition low. 
You can help.

Tuition at HRSM, recognized as one of the best Suzuki programs in the region, remains slightly lower than other local string programs in part because we are a cooperative school.  Tuition covers our basic costs, but we must also raise funds throughout the year to pay for certain program enhancements, such as:

  • an accompanist for recitals and rehearsals

  • professional development for teachers

  • rental of performance space

  • updated office equipment

  • classroom supplies

  • scholarships


If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the school to help us defray some of these costs, please write a check to Hudson River School of Music and send it to HRSM, c/o Michelle Jaeger, Board President, Aldersgate Church, 600 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522-1139.


Standing playdown

When parents help, our school thrives.

Are you an event planner?  A graphic designer?  Do you know how to build a database, or cater a gala?  As a cooperative school, we depend on parents to contribute their special skills through volunteerism.  Parents can help by serving on the Board of Directors, acting as class coordinators, or pitching in at fundraisers throughout the year. 

With everyone helping out a little bit, our school can be a stronger, more collaborative community.  Please email our director to let us know how you’d like to get involved.

Individual lesson

Donate in the name of a favorite teacher.

One of the most meaningful gifts you can give HRSM is a tax-deductible donation made in honor of a specific teacher.  For more information, please email our director and we’ll contact you.
