Partner Program

Complement and Support

At the heart of Bloomingdale School of Music's mission is providing open-access to music education to those in the local community. Partner Programming looks different throughout the city, but Bloomingdale wants to complement and support the programs that are already in place in our local schools. Proving high-quality after school music instruction, Bloomingdale's partner model creates classrooms where none exist, help the music teacher who does not have enough time with their students and opens our doors to neighbors and friends.

2017-2018 School Partners

The School at Columbia - After their school day ends, students from The School at Columbia travel to Bloomingdale for their music classes.
