Welcome to Orientation Week at Manhattan School of Music, August 22–September 4, 2018!

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

There’s music at the School, along with 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.

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.
