This is a small music school with excellent teachers that really care about the students?? progress. My daughter has been enrolled here since 2001. She has gained in these school not only musical skills but the confidence to stand in front of an audience and play the violin. This school has everything a student need to learn music: dedicated teachers, small mini-recitals throughout the year and spring and winter concert where the school and all the kids really shine and show their families and friends the hard work

As an adult beginner on the piano, I've been happily studying here for quite a few years. I've had two excellent teachers during that time. The attention I get is individualized. The pieces I'm playing are chosen for my skill level, but I'm also given pieces that challenge me to improve my technique. And I can choose my own music, rather than having it always chosen for me. The school is small and very friendly. I would highly recommend this school for any adult who's always wanted to play an instrument but never got around to it.

I took piano lessons here for a year and a half or so and then finally decided to move on. I felt that my teacher was really just listening to me practice and correcting my missed notes rather than really teaching me any core fundamentals of music or technique. She was also somewhat arrogant. I also felt the staff in charge of the place was pretty rude and abrupt . These people are more interested in taking your money than really ensuring a positive learning experience. Furthermore, the space is tiny and often stinky too! I would recommend a more established music school with a better facility and reputation.

I had hoped to find an excellent musical experience for my son and I thought this quirky little school would be the perfect place for him to receive violin lessons. What a disappointment. The odd, frantic pace of lessons upset him and the teachers were less than kind or accommodating. My advice would be to walk a few blocks east and study at Turtle Bay Music School. My son is thrilled to be in their Suzuki program and he's made a lot of progress quickly.

I had looked for a good classical music school for my daughter back when all you could find for a 3 yrs old was some mediocre "Clap & Tap" music lesson.
This school was able to show my daughter the true path to work. Would she reach the main hall at Carnigie? Don't know but time will tell. Mostly as with any artist the light shines when they are ready.
This school has the tools she needed the rest is commitment and focus.
She has been there for 7years and counting.

This is one of the best kept secrets around. If you are shopping for a music school
this one is really special. Dedicated and very talented teachers, doesn't feel like the New York churn them out typically overpriced school.
Space is small but the quality of the lessons makes up for the cosmetic stuff.
My son has been enrolled there for almost 6 years and has advanced amazingly.
He clearly has gotten a really advanced understanding of music, heads above his
friends at other places.
This is a place to watch.

Well- this "school" of music is right next door to Carnegie Hall. Don't let that fool you! That's about as close as you are liable to get while taking lessons here. The space is claustrophobic, the teachers are sub-par and run here to teach part time, so they are not very commited. The only thing they are good at here, is taking your money. My daughter stuck it out for the lessons I signed her up for- and then we moved on. Save yourelf some time and keep on walking-you;ll get to Carnegie Hall.
