"I had two students attend Meadowmount for the first time last summer. They loved it and thrived! They are hooked on the Meadowmount School of Music and will return as often as possible. I couldn’t be happier or more appreciative of what Meadowmount has to offer my students." - Jaime Laredo, Violinist, Conductor
