Music partners: responding to a critical need to restore arts education in new york city's public schools, the Conservatory created its Music partners program in 1988 to provide and enhance Music education programs throughout the city. Now working with public schools, child care centers, youth-based agencies, and adult and senior centers, we provide more than 4,500 children and adults with long term, sequential and inspiring Music instruction. More than 74% of our students live at or below the poverty level. Music partners programming includes band strings, chorus, world drumming and percussion, guitar, ukulele recorder, and early childhood Music and movement. In addition to learning how to play an instrument or sing in a choir, our students acouire the confidence to tackle difficult subjects, build a strong

Suzuki program: in the suzuki program, children learn to play their instrument as they learn their mother tongue - from a young age through immersion in a musical environment, and with the encouragement of their parents. Through parent participation, group classes, private lessons, and Music literacy, we create a fun, supportive & nurturing environment in which all children are successful. Suzuki families develop deep, joyful bonds, while parents learn positive child-rearing skills. Children not only learn to play their instrument, but build self-confidence, develop good learning habits, gain camaraderie with their peers, and nurture their love of Music and the world around them
