Welcome to Orientation Week at Manhattan School of Music, August 26–September 2, 2019!


Orientation Week is a great way to settle into MSM, get to know New York City, and make new friends.

Join us for dozens of social activities including a sunset cruise around the tip of Manhattan, an Ice Cream Social in the president’s residence, and an exclusive tour of the Steinway Piano Factory.  We will also host many informational meetings to help students get acclimated to the School.

You’ll also be able to finish up any paperwork, get to know MSM programs, take placement exams and auditions, and enroll in your classes.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Student Engagement at 917-493-4525 or studentengagement@msmnyc.edu
