The historic Tarrytown Music Hall has joined forces with theater educator Peter Royston in creating The Music Hall Academy.

The Music Hall Academy provides young people with an artistic home where they can develop vital life skills through the performing arts, learning from theater professionals, theater educators, members of the community and from each other.

“Our child has had an amazing time with the Tarrytown Music Hall virtual camp and I want to thank you for putting together such a great program. I am really looking forward to a day post-COVID where we can thank you in person for all you have done for our child and the other kids who have taken part in your workshops. It has made a huge difference to our family to have activities that our child looks forward to that are engaging, educational and fun.”
