Who We Are
Located in the heart of Westchester county and founded in 1993 by concert violinist and mother Deborah Molodofsky, Amadeus Music School was developed to bring the highest quality music instruction to children and adults from the very beginning of their studies. Our teachers love children and they are experts at teaching and relating to kids and adults of all levels. They are enthusiastic and inspiring artists and performers. They are graduates of renowned music schools such as The Juilliard School, New England Conservatory and Manhattan School of Music who are dedicated to passing on their passion and expertise to the next generation.
At Amadeus we believe that music can enhance children’s lives in every way. From the sheer joy of mastering a piece and performing, to the pleasure of playing in a group with friends, to listening, understanding and enjoying music and live performances as adults.
We believe that in order to succeed and have fun, there must be a strong connection between teachers and their students. Each student that comes to Amadeus meets personally with the Director and is paired with the best teacher for their age, personality and skill. Since our teachers have long relationships with the school, they are able to take children from their first lessons all the way through to their college years. Amadeus endeavors to inspire a lifelong passion for the arts through music.
Recent scientific studies have proven that children who study music excel in math, science, languages and creative thinking. In addition to the pleasure and confidence playing music engenders in children, studying music been shown to literally increase a child’s brain size, foster collaborative thinking, increase math and language skills, support executive function and organizational development, and ignite creativity.
