The latest information about the 2021-2022 academic year at Manhattan School of Music

News update on May 3, 2021

The vaccination rate of the MSM on campus community in Spring 2021 has now just above 50%.

April 6, 2021

Dear Members of the MSM Community:

With the carefully designed health and safety protocols, and with adherence to these measures by our MSM students, faculty, and staff, MSM began and has remained open for this entire academic year. For this, we thank you for your contributions, and sacrifices, to keep the MSM community healthy and safe.

As we look ahead to next year, we are excited to announce that MSM plans for the Fall 2021 to offer fully on-campus instruction once again.  This “back-to-normal” on-campus experience will take the best practices from before the pandemic and add to it new best practices we learned during the past year.

Our Restart Committee will continue to closely monitor and respond to Federal and New York State recommendations and measures. Based on the trajectory of the virus, vaccinations over the summer, and any travel restrictions that may still be in place by fall, MSM may retain or implement some elements of a hybrid educational model to maintain a safe and accessible learning environment. We will communicate regularly over the summer to keep you apprised of the plans for the fall.

We are excited to approach the end of this semester with the hopefulness that the future holds.

Executive Vice President and Provost
Manhattan School of Music
