Visit MSM

Created with Sketch.

We invite you to experience Manhattan School of Music and our neighborhood!

MSM offers both in-person and virtual information sessions and tours to prospective students and their families. Both experiences provide a personalized window into our vibrant musical community and an overview of MSM’s exceptional academic programs, the application and audition process, and MSM’s world-class facilities. Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at our newly renovated concert halls, performance, practice & learning spaces, libraries, dining facilities, residence hall, and student union. Students have the opportunity to meet with both our team of admission professionals and current students.

Manhattan School of Music is located in the academic heart of NYC’s Upper West Side at 130 Claremont Avenue, one block west of Broadway, and just north of 122nd St. It is conveniently accessible by public transportation.
