About the Crowden School
The Crowden School, recognized as the first of its kind in the United States, is a coeducational day school for grades four through eight that balances music and academics to provide a transformative education. Founded in 1983 by Scottish violinist Anne Crowden, the school is noted for using the cooperative art of chamber music in remarkable ways to expand the learning potential of its students. Advanced communication and concentration skills, self-confidence, curiosity, and a lifelong love of music are just a few benefits of Crowden’s ensemble-based curriculum. Crowden School alumni emerge as well-rounded, remarkable individuals who are successful in and out of a life of music. The Crowden School believes that music is an inherent part of being human, and in the power of music to change lives—indeed, to change everything. For more information, please visit crowden.org.
