On March 10, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy visited the Neighborhood Music School for an hour of performances, a tour of the building and warm conversation with students, parents and faculty members.

During the afternoon visit he was joined by Hamden State Representative Brendan Sharkey, the speaker of the House, and New Haven Mayor Toni Harp. During the tour, led by Executive Director Larry Zukof, the elected officials stopped in several studios and heard a piano lesson, a flute trio, a wind sextet and a jazz duo.
 
Afterward, Board member Carol Ross presented Governor Malloy and Speaker Sharkey with certificates thanking them for their support of the arts. Mayor Harp spoke of the Neighborhood Music School as "a world-class music school" and praised the partnership with New Haven public schools. Governor Malloy also spoke of the importance of early childhood education.
