Bloomingdale School of Music welcomes all students and families to share the music this spring with a diverse set of learning options and events that bring together the greater community over music, food, and fun. Choose from in-person and virtual private music lessons, group classes, music ensembles, and early childhood classes, and enjoy the free faculty concert series, instrument festivals, student recitals, and more.
Bloomingdale classes aim to educate students while instilling a sense of fun and passion for self-expression through music. The school offers lessons and classes 7 days a week for over 20 instruments for every type of student at all skill levels. Multiple genres from classical and jazz, to Broadway and pop music, are available. The spring semester begins on February 5, 2023. Register now through December 31, 2022 for access to Early Bird discount pricing. Come be part of the music! To register and learn more, visit bsmny.org/classes/spring-2023.
New this spring are drop-in packages and workshops that allow music to fit seamlessly into busy schedules. With drop-in classes, students have the flexibility to attend eight of the seventeen class sessions, and the new workshop series provides classes that meet on a monthly (rather than weekly) basis.
“While continuing to provide the highest quality private lessons the Upper West Side has to offer through our incredibly talented faculty, we also are excited for the expansion and continuation of introductory group classes for both young students as well as adults, the opportunity for students to perform in ensembles rehearsals together, and all of the end of semester performances they prepare for,” said Laura Gravino, Senior Director of Programming, Bloomingdale School of Music.

Share the experience of learning an instrument or singing with peers. Group classes are available in several instruments as well as singing and are a great introduction to music education. Classes are organized by age group.
Share the music with your baby in a “Mommy and Me” class or enroll your child in a class where they will sing, play, and socialize with other toddlers.
From orchestras to singing groups, jazz ensembles and flute choirs, there are many ways to share the music this spring at Bloomingdale. Experience the joy of making music together in a Bloomingdale ensemble.
Now’s the time to try something new or pick up that old instrument and get inspired. Classes and lessons are available for adults in multiple instruments, or you can share the appreciation of music with other adults in one of our lecture series.

In the words of life-long student Daisy Roberts, one of Bloomingdale’s more than 600 students, “323 West 108th Street is more than a music school. It’s a community, a family, a home. I don’t think I’d be the musician I am today without Bloomingdale. It’s nurtured me as I grew up, helped me develop as a person, and changed me for the better. So thank you, Bloomingdale. I couldn’t have done it without you.”
