For aspiring families and their children in the Bronx, the study of classical music opens young ears and eyes to a brighter future.
Children who study classical music become stronger students, more attentive listeners, more compassionate and thoughtful adults.
Music nourishes confidence, inspiration, and joy! We’re deeply committed to offering the lifelong gift of music to young people in the Bronx, and our program continues to grow.
Please join us! Your gift will help to keep instruction as affordable as possible for deserving families and budding young artists in the Bronx.

“There’s a lot of cultural richness here, but the borough is really drained of resources. If we want the Bronx to thrive, we have to make a commitment to change, and to stay here, and to support programs like this.”Jorge Estrella, Parent
Donors & Partners
Thank you to Our Generous Supporters, Donors and Partners.
Our Special Thanks to Major Supporters:
The Bronx Conservatory of Music’s mission is largely possible due to the largess of the Bronx Community College. We would like to thank President Thomas Isekenegbe and all of BCC for their gracious support of our program and mission.
The Bronx Conservatory of Music has one main location and one satellite location. Our main campus is located at Bronx Community College, W. 181st St. and University Avenue. Lessons are held in Guggenheim Hall on Saturdays during the school year. The satellite location is at the Holy Rosary School on E. Gunhill Rd. and Arnow Avenue. Classes are held on weekdays from 2 pm-6 pm. We are grateful to Holy Rosary School for allowing us to offer our program to students at their facilities.
New York’s Premier Classical Music Radio Station, WQXR, helped kickstart the Bronx Conservatory’s first ever instrument library. Because of their generous gift of 19 instruments, the Conservatory is able to provide students with instrument loans that will help make lessons even more affordable for students in our program. We thank WQXR and the WQXR Instrument Drive for their gracious support.
