Message From the Dean of Students

Welcome to the 2021-22 academic year at Manhattan School of Music!

This Student Handbook outlines what Manhattan School of Music has in place to support and enhance the student experience, as well as the policies and procedures we ask students to adhere to – the “do’s and don’ts” that you must live by in order to remain in good standing in the community. Please take a careful look at all the information that is offered to you in this Handbook.

It is my sincerest hope that this will be the year the sun comes out! Last year we made the best of things, and many of the relationships we did have were all the sweeter in the context of such deprivation. Now we will be freer to be together and you will have the space and the connections to turn yourself into the particular young artist that only YOU can be. I hope you all find ways to grow and thrive and that we can all maintain that profound sense of gratitude at having things we used to take for granted restored. For those of you who suffered personal loss during the pandemic, I hope MSM will be a place for you to feel a community connection that will help healing and finding new meaning.

This year, as always, MSM we are committed to creating a warm and welcoming environment. The Dean of Students Office is a place to bring your questions and concerns. I do my very best to find answers and support for all who turn to me. The staff I work with in Student Affairs shares my commitment, as we outline in our mission statement:

Have a great year!!

Monica Coen Christensen, Ed.D.
Dean of Students
