Manhattan School of Music's tradition of musical excellence, our outstanding artist-faculty, and our location in one of the world's most vital cultural centers, with the performance and networking oppor- tunities it offers, make the School an exceptional place from which to launch a career. There is no better preparation for professional life than the performance experience and rigorous training that MSM provides. All enrolled students have access to the resources of our Center for Music Entrepreneurship and can simultaneously land consistent paying performance opportunities around the tri-state area. Upon graduation, they already know what it takes to pursue a career in music. It is no surprise, then, that our alumni are successful in every aspect of musical life—performing, composing, teaching, producing, and recording. Many are among the most distinguished artists on stage today in opera houses, concert halls, jazz clubs, and Broadway theaters.
