• Private music lessons are for students who want to pursue their musical education outside of school and participate in other performance activities outside of school such as All County Band, recitals, NYSSMA, etc. Private lessons can help to provide additional individual instruction that can both help students who need a little extra to "catch up" as well as to accommodate the student who excels and would like to advance to the "next level". It is also great for the student who just loves their instrument and would like to spend more time learning more about it.
    The following is by no means a definitive list. These are people who have taught privately in Scarsdale or who have had Scarsdale students come to their school or studio. Some of the following teachers will travel to student's homes, others teach out of their studios or other music schools.
    Here is a partial list of some excellent private teachers:
