The Brooklyn Music School is a community school for the performing arts, founded in 1912 as the Brooklyn Music School Settlement. It owns and operates an historic four-story building in Fort Greene neighborhood, ( identified as the Down Brooklyn Cultural District) that contains twenty-four classrooms, three dance studios, and a professional 266-seat Spanish Style theatre.
BMS offers on-site classes of individual study and group instruction to approximately 400 students of all ages, although the majority are between six and 12 years old. Our programs emphasize intensive study and self-discipline, rather than generalized or introductory exposure to the performing arts. The curriculum is organized into four divisions: Pre-School, Preparatory, Pre-Professional in both Music and Dance, and Adult.
For students aged 18 months to five years, the Pre-School Division provides group experiences. The classes promote the internalization of the basics of rhythm, pitch and dynamics and cultivate the joy and appreciation of music.
