All students are eligible to study piano and string instruments. To study woodwind, brass, or percussion instruments, students must be in Grade 4 or above or have the approval of the teacher.

All instrumental music lessons will be scheduled in the 91st Street Building. Most lessons are scheduled after school; Middle and Upper School lessons may be scheduled during the school day if schedules permit. Additional fees apply for individual lessons, and financial aid is available.
All students must have access to an instrument for practice outside of school. For piano students, please contact the Instrumental Music office if you would like information about renting or buying a piano. As needed, an electronic keyboard is an acceptable substitute for a piano.
