Lessons arranged through this service would be taught either in the client’s home or at the teacher’s studio/home. Any lessons arranged through our Teacher Referral program will not be taught at the School and are not part of an official academic program. This service is not for those seeking to become students at Manhattan School of Music or to study with our College or Precollege faculty members.
Those seeking music instruction for non-beginner children might also be interested in the School’s prestigious Precollege Division, which offers a full day of lessons, ensembles, and classes for ages 5–18, accepted by audition.
Musicians: To become part of the Hire a Musician and/or Private Teacher Directory rosters, MSM students and alums should see below for important details.
Please note: This service functions separately from School’s on-campus College and Precollege and those programs’ private instruction offerings.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 917-493-4502 if you need further assistance with the Private Teacher Directory.
