As an organization that deeply values diversity, The Hochstein School stands in solidarity with all marginalized communities who are targeted with microaggressions of hate and with violence. We denounce any injustices perpetrated towards them. We are committed to speaking out against all forms of racism and bigotry and will continue our work in bringing unity and inclusiveness to all - at Hochstein and throughout our community.

The Hochstein School, founded in commemoration of genius and dedicated to providing access to opportunity, is a vibrant community of musicians, dancers, and supporters who choose to come together in this historic and inspiring place to develop in themselves, and in each other, the ability to speak and communicate through the making of music and dance. We do this with the conviction that music nurtures, enriches, and energizes every human life, and that the joy of making music, and all the expressive arts that it inspires, holds the key to creating a better world.



Mission Statement

The mission of the David Hochstein Memorial Music School is to provide people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities
with access to excellent music and dance education in a community that nurtures and encourages personal achievement.
