So much more than music...

 

OUR MISSION

Music Haven empowers and connects young people through exceptional tuition-free music education, mentoring, and performance by our resident musicians in the heart of New Haven, giving all kids a chance to play.



ABOUT MUSIC HAVEN

At Music Haven, young musicians study with and are mentored by members of our resident ensemble, the Haven String Quartet, or one of our other full-time conservatory-trained professional Resident Musicians, from when they are in first, second, or third grade until they graduate from high school. At the heart of our model is the relationship between teacher and student, and the relationships between the young musicians, themselves—they learn not only from the members of the string quartet, but also from the foundations of chamber music: listening to each other, working as a team, communicating through music, and dedication and focus in service of creating something beautiful together. Through music, they build community, develop resilience and self confidence, and experience collective struggle and success.

With the Haven String Quartet at the heart of a rich and ever-expanding variety of educational programming, workshop offerings, and performances throughout the region, each of our students and his or her family is part of a vibrant community of musicians, in which he or she has the opportunity to play and learn alongside the world-class professionals who are their teachers and mentors.
