Nonprofit Music School in Westport, CT, for All Levels of Students
Westport School of Music (WSM) was founded in 1938 and is a member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education. We’re a trusted music school in Westport, CT, with the mission of providing quality instruction for people of all ages and abilities, regardless of race, income, ethnicity, or gender.
Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, WSM is one of Connecticut’s oldest continuing nonprofit schools of music. With a faculty from some of the most prestigious conservatories and university music departments in the country, we’re committed to providing student-centered learning for students throughout Fairfield County. Students receive private lessons every week and several performance opportunities each year.
Your Time, Your Schedule
With adult learners, teachers act as more of a coach and mentor, working individually with students to attain their personal goals. Some adults want to return to the instrument they studied as a child; others see music lessons as a new hobby or as a vehicle for overall life enrichment. Students can choose either weekly adult music lessons or a package if they travel frequently. We’re happy to design a schedule that works for you.
Teaching Children and Adults
Lessons for Children
Our instructors offer classical and jazz piano lessons as well as lessons in voice, strings, woodwinds, acoustic guitar, and electric bass. The goal is to provide a strong technical foundation while instilling self-discipline, encouraging creativity, and fostering a lifelong love of music.
Students with Special Needs:
Reaching Where Words Cannot
Through neuroscience, we have begun to understand why music is so powerful, particularly for people with special needs. Music therapy is evidence-based and involves using music to help achieve goals.
Our Board-Certified music therapist works to develop trusting relationships with students who have developmental delays, autism, or other disabilities. Learning music encourages them to express themselves without judgment and increase their confidence. For more information, visit our MusicWorks! page.
Twice a year, WSM students share their musical gifts by performing for residents of local nursing and healthcare facilities. Other community partners have included Norwalk Housing Authority, Sturges Ridge Assisted Living, and Weston Public Library.
With support from the Department of Economic Development, CT Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the NEA, a federal agency
