 There are several routes we recommend for getting around the school while the lobby outside Neidorff-Karpati hall is closed due to construction. This lobby separates Anderson Hall from the main school building.Please check back here for updates!

– FYI, construction hours are approximately 7:00a.m. – 4:00p.m.; Monday through Friday
– As we navigate this exciting time at Manhattan School of Music during The Centennial Project, we recommend that those able to do so utilize the stairs when possible.
