There’s something really special that happens at a small, parent-cooperative school like Hudson River School of Music. Parents, teachers, and students form a close community, working together to help everyone succeed. I’ve seen lifelong friendships form here – among kids who share a love of music, among parents getting to know each other in the hallways between classes, and most poignantly, between teachers and students as they work – and play – together over the years.
The Suzuki philosophy, which guides everything we do at HRSM, is grounded in the belief that collaboration – not competition – is the key to a healthy learning environment. HRSM is a truly child-centered school. Each child learns at his or her own pace, and students are taught to support each other’s efforts. I think that’s one of the reasons HRSM feels like a family to me. I also think it’s why our students stay with us year after year, developing skills that will be with them for a lifetime.
