THE STORY:

The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music relies on donations to fund its mission and keep its doors open to the community and we are so grateful for your support.  Founded in 1897, the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music transforms and enriches the lives of children and adults through music education and music therapy. Our music education programs serve nearly 7,000 people—in schools, community centers, and other partner organizations—regardless of their ability to pay.

We believe music has the power to build community and transform lives. The Conservatory is committed to this work because everyone needs music in their lives to realize their potential, and society’s. Skills developed through understanding and making music are essential to the growth and well-being of the individual. We serve the communities of New York through the following programs.


Music Partners Program

BCM’s Music Partners outreach program works directly with 30 schools, Head Start programs, and senior centers offering subsidized, comprehensive, and sequential music instruction at little or no cost to nearly 4,500 individuals in Brooklyn and Queens. Programming includes band, strings, chorus, world drumming and percussion, recorder, early childhood music and movement, guitar, and ukulele. A growing body of research demonstrates that students who do not receive arts instruction, particularly those in economically challenged urban environments, are less likely to excel in other subjects or develop critical cognitive, behavioral, and social skills. BCM’s Music Partners program addresses this critical need at a time when arts programs in schools are rapidly being cut, particularly in underserved communities.


Music Therapy Program

Using music as a therapeutic tool, we help people with emotional, developmental, and physical disabilities improve their lives. As one of the largest providers of music therapy in New York City and the only nonprofit provider in Brooklyn, BCM currently serves approximately 850 children and adults with special needs at 21 partnering schools, foster care agencies, and community-based organizations in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. The aim of BCM’s Music Therapy Program is to clinically address the developmental, social, emotional, psychological, and musical goals of individuals with special needs through active music making with an experienced, trained, licensed music therapist.


On-Site Music Programs

Through BCM’s Onsite Division, instruction is offered through more than 70 courses to 1,100 individuals through private and group sessions in every major instrument, genre, and pedagogical approach. BCM has expanded its on-site programming in recent years, adding Dan Zanes House Party, Rock Band, Home Recording, Tango Ensemble, Pop Strings, and Intro to Piano / Intro to Guitar for both children and adults. Instruction is provided at our 10,000 sq. ft. landmark building nestled in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
