Musical Associates was founded in 1986 and provided quality music instruction in homes throughout Westchester County, New York. Over the years the company expanded into New York City, Boston, and the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
In the mid-nineties we added an after-school division to provide group instruction in recreation centers and after-care centers in all three areas. In 2005 we founded the early-childhood division offering an innovative approach to teaching pre-k children guitar and piano. A general music class was began in 2008 at the request of the director of Bright Horizons IMF children’s center.
The instructional side of Musical Associates was turned over to The Village Music School in 2019 with a 501(c)(3) public charity being formed slightly thereafter. The Village Music School Foundation has been helping Title 1 famlies participate in music classes since 2020 and continues its work in a variety of areas.
With a roster of international performers, it was merely a logical step to begin representing musical acts for concerts and clubs around the country and the world. A recording and publishing division under the name Cornwall Records was begun in 2018.
