Located on West 122nd Street between Claremont Avenue and Broadway, the Manhattan School of Music (MSM) is a world famous music conservatory. The school offers degrees on the bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels in the areas of classical and jazz performance and composition. Offering hundreds of concert presentations and community events each year, Manhattan School of Music is a vigorous contributor to the cultural fabric of New York City and an important player on the world stage. Now home to 900 students from over 40 countries, the School is a thriving international community of artists. As MSM continues to grow, its focus remains the same as it was during its founding: the education of tomorrow’s leaders in the arts.

The Manhattan School of Music regularly hosts musical events in the evening, and it is definitely worth giving their calendar a look before you head over, as most events are free and open to the public, and are a great way to wind down during the evening after your tour of the neighborhood.
