Students learn the rewards of persistence and hard work. They improve their musical skills at a much more rapid pace under the one-on-one tutelage of a highly qualified teacher through the JCC Performing Arts Program.
As they experience success, students’ confidence levels increase. We have found this self-confidence carries over into other parts of their lives including academics. MusicWorks helps foster a lifelong love of music as students find joy in their ability to play and perform.
The program was founded in 2008 by parents Judith Kass and Alison Paul. Initial funding came from The Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns. Subsequent funding has come from The Rotary Club of the Tarrytowns, the UJA Music for Youth Grant Program, and individual contributions from community members. We welcome your support of this worthy arts enrichment/youth development program!
