Did you know? Music lessons teach social and cognitive skills. Teaching children music at a young age can have profound effects on their social and cognitive development. The discipline and structure of weekly music lessons can create habits that will last a lifetime. Enroll your child in our fall 2024 program to kick off a life-long love of music.

Bronx Bops - early childhood music for preschoolers, toddlers and babies - is starting this week for the winter/spring term. Sign up today! Classes are only $20 and the session has 14 classes. Total tuition for the term is $280.

The Bronx School for Music’s Early Childhood Music Program “Bronx Bops” introduces children to the fundamentals of music: rhythm, melody, harmony, tempo, dynamics and articulation. In class, children explore instruments, play musical games and learn to move to music. We believe that parental involvement is crucial to the musical development of any child and creates a powerful bond between parent and child in musical discovery. Therefore, classes are structured to be a learning experience for both parents and/or caregivers. Parents and/or caregivers will participate and enjoy this exciting class along with their child.

The Early Childhood Music Program is open to children ages 1 to 5 years of age. Classes are led by a professionally-trained musician faculty member and feature live instrumental accompaniment.

The Bronx School for Music is becoming a pillar in the Norwood neighborhood of the Bronx Community. 3 years ago, BSM opened its doors to welcome children who wanted to explore their musical interests and abilities.

Over 250 students come through our doors annually. Any gift, whether it’s $5, $10 or $100, will make an enormous impact and support our mission of providing affordable and accessible music education, in a space dedicated solely to our student’s musical exploration, and a permanent staple in our community. ...

Did you ever wonder how that piano got inside a room that you thought was far too small to fit into, or through that doorway that looked so small or onto that stage for a recital? Here’s @magicpiano2023 setting up this beautiful @Steinway concert grand piano for our year-end recital. Thank you @bronxartsorg for supporting us, thank you @steinwayandsons for giving us the best piano made in the world for our students (also made here in NYC) and to all of our supporters who make running this ship possible!
