About Us

Kinhaven Music School, Inc. is a non-profit organization located in the rolling green hills of Weston, Vermont that fosters high-level music-making experiences in which shared learning, mutual support, friendship, and community are always present.

Kinhaven was founded by visionaries David and Dorothy Dushkin and cultivated by pioneering music educators Jerry and Nancy Bidlack. In 2011, Kinhaven welcomed two new executive directors, Deborah Buck and Tony Mazzocchi, and two new Junior Session directors, Sandy Dennis and Marty Knieriem.

Kinhaven offers four classical music programs each summer:

For high school age musicians

For middle school age musicians

For amateur string, wind, and piano players, college age or older

For intermediate to advanced level pianists, college age or older

For advanced musicians age 18-28
