Meet Elliott Bluestein - Composer, Pianist & 2018 Special Music School Graduate


Elliott Bluestein's life is strongly influenced by music. He started piano lessons when he was three, but knew he wanted to take music seriously when he began to compose at age seven.

Elliott's favorite part of Special Music School is its community of supportive students and teachers, who surround him with rigor, positivity, and "inside jokes." The recent graduate says: "SMS is a truly unique and warm community which I have been very grateful to be a part of. Though I will be sad to leave, I am also extremely excited to apply the skills and knowledge I've learned as a student here."

Elliott hopes to study composition, songwriting, and music production at Berklee College of Music, while also exploring the fields of journalism and literature.

Gifts of all sizes make a difference! Whether you can give $100, $1,000 or $10,000, your support will create even more musical opportunities for students like Elliott.
