In addition to all the musical opportunities during the day…


Many students take music lessons right at Brown after school through our Enrichment Program. Offerings vary year to year, but have included violin, guitar, piano, drums, and brass in past years.

Music Cafe

Students in Fourth Grade through High School, as well as Brown School families and community members alike take the small stage in our own Galleria Art and Music Café during Open Mic Nights. With a real coffeehouse vibe, it’s a great place to share vocal or instrumental skills in a solo or group setting to wow your friends!

Street Musicians

Many students choose to perform and showcase their talents as “street” musicians in the hallways of the school prior to the start of the Art and Music fair each spring.


Brown School is a member of the New York State School Music Association, and students are encouraged to prepare solo or ensemble pieces to be played at our area festivals.

Public Performances

In addition to our own Veteran’s Day Celebration during school, we sing patriotic songs at the mall around Veteran’s Day. Caroling and playing bells is a popular Brown School holiday tradition. Students serenade those on Union Street and warm up with cookies and hot cocoa afterward.


We are home to The Empire State Youth Orchestra and we are lucky enough to have them perform for us from time to time. Brown Students are welcomed to try out for the group as well!

About Brown School

The Brown School community is strong and supportive, and we believe that our students deserve not only an academic education but also a place to enjoy traditions and experiences that they cherish for years to come. Our faculty and administration are committed to mindfully educating each individual student in a nurturing and collaborative environment.

Our School Day

Our school song states that “Brown School is joy, friendship, and laughter. Memories dear, now and long after. Working each day, growing together. Brown School is learning and love.” Even though we have modernized our teaching and offerings, these words hold true even decades after they were written.

Beyond the School Day

Brown School students of all ages have a plethora of options available after the school day is over. Whether it is partaking in the after school or Plus programs that offer a purposeful place for students while parents are working, exploring new interests or established hobbies, or getting together beyond the walls of our school, our Brown School community is strong.

Prospective Parents

We know that you are looking for just the right spot for your child, and we want to partner with you in that process. It is hard to get a sense of the community and daily routines of Brown School online, and we encourage you to schedule a visit or join us at one of our Open Houses.
