The Bronx Conservatory of Music offers private and group music instruction for children regardless of previous experience or skill. Adults may also enroll if studio lesson time is available.
Since preference is given to returning students, lesson times for new students at Bronx Conservatory are very limited. Enrollment operates on a rolling basis and registrations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Completing the online sign up form does not register you for lessons. It is a registration of interest only and we will be in touch following your submission.
If returning students cannot register by the start of the semester, please send an email or call and leave a message at our administrative office.
COVID PANDEMIC: Please note that, due to the Covid pandemic, currently all lessons and classes are online. We anticipate returning to in-person instruction as soon as conditions are safe to do so.
The minimum age to begin lessons is five years old.
For voice, the minimum age for private instruction is 11 and is subject to the approval of the vocal instructor, since children’s voices mature at varying rates.

30-minute private lessons: $360
