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.
The School has played an important part in the careers and lives of tens of thousands of students. 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 recording studio also offers an opportunity for students to learn about the art of sound recording, work with the latest computer programs, and document their work.
