Description

Suburban Music School (SMS), founded by Beatrice Wernick, opened with seven students in February of 1982 in the Media Elementary School. In two years the School moved to larger quarters in the First United Methodist Church in Media. Four years later the School moved again, this time to its permanent home at 201 North Providence Road, where it is now open six days a week. In addition to a full curriculum at its own facility and next door at the Providence Friends Meeting House, the School provides community outreach programs to the surrounding area, including the Chester Music Program and Visiting Artists Program for the public and private schools in the area. Suburban Music School has been a full member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts since 1992.
