Private Lessons

Flexible Private Lessons (available online or in-person)

This summer we are excited to offer flexible lesson packages to fit a wide range of scheduling needs. Students can register for lesson packages of 4 or more lessons which can be flexibly scheduled directly with the instructor during the Summer semester. We will be offering options for both in-person and virtual lessons, depending on each teacher’s ability to return to the building and on students’ comfort level with in-person learning. For more information about which option is available for you, please reach out to your teacher directly or our Registration department at registrar@bsmny.org. If a student’s usual teacher is not available, our registration team is happy to connect families with other great faculty who will coach the student through the summer months. All students are invited to participate in the Summer Sharing Hour, an informal student recital to showcase student’s great work.

Early Childhood

Early Childhood Classes (Available online or in-person)

Join Aaron, Patti, and Shoshana for fun, interactive, and music-filled classes to engage the youngest learners throughout the Summer months. Offerings are available both in person and online, at a variety of days and times to suit every family’s scheduling needs and every child’s delight. Children from 3 months to 5 years old will learn musical concepts through hands-on percussive experiences, as well as song and dance. To assure safety measures are met, each in person class is limited to 4 students with an accompanying parent or guardian and masks are required for the duration of the class.

Music Theory

Virtual Music Theory Classes

Get a head-start on your music theory education by signing up for one of our Summer Intro to Music Theory classes with Sebastian Cruz! We are offering two virtual sections on Mondays and Wednesdays for each class; ages 8-12, ages 13-17, and ages 18 and up. Through the analytical study of music theory, students will develop the confidence to open many doors including playing by ear, improvising, reading, writing, or composing music. Current music theory students will also be able to enroll in their continuing class, so they don’t miss a beat this summer!

Music Ensembles

Virtual Ensembles

Students ages 8 and up can participate in performance-based classes such as our two different Flute Choirs led by Tereasa Payne, or our Jazz Ensemble with Michael Cochrane. Students will gain valuable experience rehearsing and performing in a virtual group setting to continue making music safely together.

Summer Workshops

Summer Workshops

Bloomingdale is excited to announce the return of in-person week-long workshops on-site for students interested in sharpening their musicianship skills, spending more time with their instrument, and meeting new friends. Each Summer symposium offers full-day, immersive programming Monday through Friday and will feature a combination of private instruction, group classes, ensemble playing, guided practice, masterclass opportunities, and a combination of faculty and student concerts.

ADDITIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Music Programs

We offer in-depth programs for students ready to take on more than just a private lesson.

WE OFFER NEED-BASED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

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 provide access to music education to anyone who seeks it, regardless of economic status, ability, ethnicity, or religion, which has a profound impact on individual lives as well as on our entire community.
