Students study music theory, history, and piano. They have the opportunity to engage in solo repertory, chamber music, and AP Music Theory. Students take large ensemble classes and perform on the main stage all four years.
Students may complete internships with cultural organizations and perform in special events.
Our Studio partners with Orchestra One, Julliard, 92Y, Jazz at Lincoln Center, All City Music Programs, and the New York Philharmonic to provide authentic experiences for our students.
We are a NYSSMA Festival Host. All students perform as soloists at the highest levels – regularly earning gold and gold with distinction honors.
What happens in the Studio?
Our music students present professional performances, playing repertoire such as Afro Blue, Blues in Hoss Flat, Bist due bei mir, Ave Maria, Lullaby Hoedown, and Invicta.
How do they do it?
Students engage in two to three periods of arts instruction a day and are expected to practice daily for a minimum of 30 minutes after school. The Music Room is open for practicing before and after school and during lunch. Some students even practice in the hall, sweetly serenading their peers.
“Without music, life itself would be impossible!”
