The Community Outreach ProgramResponding to the need for skilled musical instruction for underserved and disabled students, Hoff-Barthelson designed a mobile, low-cost program capable of reaching students wherever they are in Westchester. Over the past five years, the program has grown from a single location to six sites, mostly in Yonkers and Mount Vernon.
Over 200 students participate in free, weekly group lessons with an established curriculum taught by Hoff-Barthelson faculty. All teachers have degrees and advanced certification in music education. Through these regularly scheduled classes at schools and day care centers, Hoff-Barthelson runs the most extensive, free music education program for underserved children in Westchester County.
Our current locations are:
- Mt. Pleasant-Blythedale School District, Valhalla
- Graham-Windham, Hastings
- Head Start, Mount Vernon and Port Chester
- West Help, Mount Vernon
- Edward Williams Elementary School, Mt. Vernon
