The Arts

Music

Music has played an integral part in the school’s rich history and expression, and is considered an indispensable part of the college preparatory experience. Our recently renovated music facility, with choral and instrumental practice rooms, is indicative of the emphasis we place on the participation and study of music at The Stony Brook School.
