The Crowden School
Children who love music have a home at The Crowden School in Berkeley!
A third-through-eighth-grade day school with chamber music at its heart, The Crowden School is unlike any other school in the country. Since 1983, Crowden’s ensemble-based curriculum has instilled in our students the collaborative, creative, and critical-thinking skills to succeed in life. The study of chamber music alongside a rigorous academic curriculum offers our students a unique educational experience with transformative results. The joy in playing music fuels their passion to create, explore, discuss, brainstorm, act, and grow into themselves at this important juncture in their young lives.
At The Crowden School, music changes everything.
