Where Westport Meets the World

Suzuki Music School of Westport to Move to a New Location at the Colonial Green Complex

The Suzuki Music School of Westport is one of the country’s leading non-profit community music schools dedicated to the family oriented Suzuki method of music instruction! After 18 years in Westport the school will move to a wonderful new home in the center of Westport. From August 1st, 2016, the Suzuki schools will be open their 7000 square foot facility in the Colonial Green Complex at 246 Post Rd East, Westport, CT 06880. This central location will mark a turning point in the school’s role within the town.


The new building, located directly in the downtown business district will provide a large performance space, rehearsal space for musicians and teaching studios. The school hopes the venue will become a destination point for the arts and classical music in the town and is planning collaborations with the Westport Library,and the Westport Center for Senior Activities, among other leading arts institutions.

The School’s Director, Dr. Andrew Smith commented “Moving to a new home this Fall, comes after a busy 2015-16! This spring marked our second appearance at Carnegie Hall, NY, with 250 children of all ages playing to a packed hall. We couldn’t have imagined topping that but this great new building is unbelievable. This puts the school at the heart of the Westport music scene and we couldn’t be prouder. Whether or not you have children who are interested in music we would encourage music lovers everywhere to come to one of our events and see for themselves!”

About: The Suzuki Music School of Westport is a member of the Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce, the Suzuki Association of the Americas and the National Guild for Community Arts Education. For information on events please call (203) 227-9474 or visit the school website at www.suzukischools.org

DMV advice needed

I have to go to the DMV to get a replacement title for one that was lost -- it can't be done online. I'm dreading this. When is the best time to go (for least time spent online). And is there a better place than Norwalk, even if it's further away? Help!
