The Spring 2021 Opening at MSM

Created with Sketch.

Welcome MSM students! Here are the details about our Spring 2021 Semester.

To the MSM Community,

This webpage contains important information about the reopening of Manhattan School of Music for the Spring 2021 Semester. This process has been led by an internal MSM Restart Task Force working with MSM faculty and staff and gathering input from local and state agencies, as well as our music conservatory counterparts in the U.S. and beyond.

We continue with a blended instructional model that gives students flexibility and choice for completing the Spring semester. Our first consideration in developing these plans is to the health and safety of the MSM Community, and the plans are informed by local, state, and federal guidelines that also allow us to create engaging experiences for our wonderful students.

Please read the “MSM Spring Reopening Guide” (link below), which outlines details about our blended academic year and all related procedures, protocols, and safety measures for Fall 2020. An updated version of this guide will be published in early January 2021.

For regularly updated information on COVID-19 testing results for those of us on campus, please see the “Tracking COVID-19 on Campus” drop-down menu below.

Whatever schedule track you have chosen, we look forward to welcoming you home to MSM this Spring 2021 semester!

Warm regards,

James Gandre, President
Joyce Griggs, Executive Vice President and Provost

Spring 2021 Plan

The Spring 2021 Semester at MSM begins on February 1 and ends on May 21.

All students are completing their academic courses through remote learning. Students are taking part in one of two performance-based “tracks,” which include one fully remote learning option and one in-person option.

Please note:
These plans are based on current guidelines and are subject to change should orders from local, state, or federal agencies mandate MSM to do so. MSM may also elect to alter these plans to align with best practices as recommended by industry resources.
