The goal of Greenwich House Music School is to teach students the beauty and transformative power of music, art, dance and theater and make them lifelong lovers of the arts. Since 1905, Greenwich House Music School (GHMS) has provided high-quality, affordable arts education for New Yorkers of all ages. The distinguished faculty works to ensure students have the opportunity to experience these programs through private lessons, classes, workshops and monthly recitals. Each year GHMS provides $50,000 in scholarships for students in need, as well as for public school outreach programs. In addition to educating its students, GHMS serves the community with a wide spectrum of concerts 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 has played an important part in the careers and lives of tens of thousands of students. Being at the center of New York’s downtown arts scene allows for an array of renowned artists to perform at the school. Past guests have included John Cage, Henry Cowell, Edgar Varèse, and more recently Hilary Hahn, David Amram, Morton Subotnick and Meredith Monk. Uncharted, a community concert series produced every spring by GHMS gives artists a safe space to take risks or work out new collaborations. Uncharted alumni include Aaron Diehl, Brianna Thomas, Marc Ribot, Sofia Rei, Michael Daves and Dan Tepfer.

Greenwich House Music School helps to hone skills, providing focused guidance that allows students to grow at their own pace into their musicianship. Under the tutelage of some of the finest musicians in New York, students explore multiple aspects of musical expression. The school’s early childhood education program maintains a strong focus on music and art, incorporating emergent literacy, science and math skills to create a school-ready environment that values the importance of play as an essential aspect of learning.

Group classes for adults and children alike allow for challenging and creative learning in a relaxed, open atmosphere where individual talents and skills help the group to learn and embrace each member’s individual expression.

Private lessons provide an intimate setting for specific and focused instruction, which allows the student to connect with their instrument in a more personal way.

Whether just picking up an instrument for the first time, or returning to improve your skills, Greenwich House Music School has the class for you.
