We believe music has the power to change lives and our curriculum is designed to reflect this philosophy. We offer classes for a variety of instruments and for every type of student at all skill levels.
We nurture little ones by offering a sensory learning experience for infants as young as 3 months.
Enrich your understanding of styles of music, cultures and time periods with our interactive online classes. These offerings incorporate lectures, discussions, listening examples, and live demonstrations of musical concepts.
Our summer jazz offerings provide a full range of everything jazz – from a jazz history course designed to inspire a greater appreciation for jazz throughout a variety of developmental periods to an ensemble class exploring repertoire in all jazz genres – bebop, post-bop, latin and Brazilian jazz.
Music Theory is a hands-on investigation into the fabric of music leading to a fluency in the language of music. In our age-group specific courses, students will develop a working knowledge of note-reading, key signatures, time signatures, rhythmic notation in a way that is clear, understandable, and useful.
Our Summer ensembles are a fun, interactive way to get those instruments out and play with others. Our Instructors explore fun level-appropriate repertoire tailored to participants’ skill and experience levels. Each ensemble culminates in a virtual performance opportunity to but those newly acquired skills to the test.
Our one-on-one private music lessons offer instruction for over 20 instruments. Lessons focus on individual students and offer a customized learning structure. We assess the student’s skill level and learning style to ensure the student learns the basics and will continue improving.
We offer in-depth programs for students ready to take on more than just a private lesson.
Our goal is to make music education accessible and to remove the financial barrier that may prevent students from participating. Therefore, we offer need-based financial aid to as many students as possible.
We anticipate a large fiscal impact on our organization caused by program and event cancellations and postponements due to this global health crisis. Bloomingdale is continuously working to maintain steady employment for our faculty, and staff who are very financially vulnerable during these times.
