Greenwich House Music School (GHMS)
GHMS serves the musical needs of students of all ages (from as young as six months to adults), with private lessons, group classes, ensembles and regular student and faculty recitals.
For decades, GHMS has been providing classes in dance and visual arts in addition to music. Many of our most popular classes combine music, art and play to enrich your child’s creativity and aesthetic experience.
Greenwich House Music School considers students’ needs throughout the various stages of their developmental learning. Parents often think of private music lessons as part of a child’s general extra-curricular development, or as a form of entertainment. With the right teacher, however, lessons can be not only educational and fulfilling but also entertaining and rewarding.
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. For a full list of Music
