The Bronx Conservatory of Music offers private instrument/voice instruction (supplemented by free small group music skills classes) for all children regardless of previous experience or skill. Adults are welcome to 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
The minimum age to begin instrument lessons is five years old (four years old is possible subject to approval of instructor). For voice, the minimum age to begin lessons is 6 years old.
Tuition and fees
Registration and tuition fees are charged per term, and pro-rated if lessons begin after the term starts. Fall and spring terms are 15 weeks each. A registration fee of $35 is charged once per semester per family for registration.
Small group Musicianship Skills classes are free upon enrollment in private lessons, and level placement will be determined by a short test at the start of the semester. A limited number of keyboards, string instruments, and guitars are available for loan free of charge, subject to availability.
