Conservatory Receives Accreditation and Applauded for Commitment to Community

 Wednesday, March 02, 2016


Music Conservatory of Westchester announced this week the successful renewal of its accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).  As one of only 16 NASM-accredited non-degree-granting music schools in the nation, the Conservatory undergoes an accreditation review every 10 years.  The rigorous process involves preparing a comprehensive self-study document and a two-day site visit by NASM evaluators.    

In their site visit report, the evaluators commented that the not-for-profit community music school’s “teaching was inspired, leading to active learning and engagement, and joyous music making,” and that “the faculty are deeply committed to challenge all students and provide them with the best possible instruction.”  They commended the school for its “commitment and awareness of its place and function within the community as a needed resource for quality arts education and as an opportunity center for cultural and community development.”  

Conservatory Executive Director Jean Newton commented, “Our accreditation is a hallmark of our dual commitment to high quality instruction and access for all.  If you want to explore your passion for music and learn something new at any age, the Conservatory is the place to be!”
