Hochstein School of Music & Dance

50 North Plymouth Ave
Rochester, NY 14614



Walk into our waiting room on a Saturday morning or weekday afternoon and you'll hear the sound of music, of dance shoes, of laughter. You'll see tiny ballerinas in pink tights bounding up to the Dance Studios, orchestra students of all sizes with violin cases--or flutes, or tubas--and people of all ages peeking through the window of our Music Lab eager to check out what's displayed on the flat screen. You'll notice people from all backgrounds, from everywhere in our community, plunking down on couches and getting to know each other as they wait for a lesson to finish.

At Hochstein, our mission is simple: to provide excellent music and dance instruction to anyone who is interested - regardless of age, level of skill, background, or ability to pay. We aim to nurture and inspire each individual, and to welcome all to our community of musicians, dancers, and audiences.

Every day, our students take part in a journey of learning from a richly talented, experienced faculty. Sharing this journey with you is what we're all about.
