Since 1905, Greenwich House
Music School (GHMS) has been providing high-quality, affordable music education to the
people of New York City.
The school has occupied its current location at 44-46 Barrow Street in historic
Greenwich Village since 1914 and has played an important part in the careers
and lives of tens of thousands of students. The distinguished
faculty works to ensure students of all ages have the opportunity to
experience music through classes and performances,
and being at the center of New York’s downtown arts scene allows for an
array of renowned artists to become active at the school. Past
guests have included John Cage, Jorma Kaukonen,
Varèse, and more recently Morton Subotnick, Joan La Barbara and Meredith Monk.
Today, the school continues to serve the musical needs of students of all ages with private lessons, group classes, ensembles and regular student and faculty recitals. In addition to educating its students, GHMS serves the community with a wide spectrum of concerts and readings in its Renee Weiler Concert Hall, hosts education workshops and meetings for local civic and cultural organizations, and provides affordable rehearsal and performance space for local musicians. The school is a member of the New York City Coalition of Community Schools of the Arts and The National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts.
