92nd Street Y Musical Introduction Series empowers children in grades K-3 to explore the world’s musical genres; engage in music-making; and, by learning about rich musical traditions in class and through live performances, cultivate a global perspective that nurtures empathy and tolerance of diverse people and cultures.


Students learn musical concepts such as melody, rhythm and dynamics; develop listening skills critical not only to music appreciation but to success in the classroom; create and perform their own work and attend interactive, age-appropriate concerts by artists of international reputation at 92nd Street Y's Kaufmann Concert Hall. Further exploration of musical and cultural traditions through storytelling, movement and performance will provide students with a dynamic array of opportunities to learn and make connections to their school curriculum and to the world around them.
