Greenwich House Music School



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 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, Henry Cowell, Edgar 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. 

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.
