Lessons from Hoff-Barthelson Music School still resonate

“Music is an international language, a common human language, whether classical or jazz, piano playing, or partner jazz dancing. I first attended the Hoff-Barthelson Music School when I was 5 years old and continued through to my “graduation” classical piano recital concert, which took place while I was also at Scarsdale High School, Class of 1991. My classical piano and music theory years growing up as a kid at Hoff-Barthelson became the foundation of my musical understanding that was helpful when I started swing dancing (for fun) Lindy Hop around 1998 in New York City. Lessons from Hoff-Barthelson were also central to my educational experience in Scarsdale before I attended the University of Rochester (Class of ’95; ’04 MBA) and New York Law School (JD Class of 2020, evening).”
