92Y School of Music offers private instruction for adults and children on all orchestral instruments, piano, voice, guitar, ukulele, theory, music technology, composition and film scoring. New students to the school are invited to meet with the director to discuss their goals, expectations and schedule.

The interview process allows for best-suited teacher to student pairing. Student recitals are scheduled throughout the year with numerous opportunities to perform. Please call 212.415.5580 to schedule a placement interview and view our teachers by clicking here.

Students are encouraged to take Music Theory classes which accelerate and enhance private instrumental lessons. Vocalists are encouraged to add Ear Training classes to supplement private instruction. Tuition for theory classes is greatly reduced for those registered for private lessons.

Lessons are available Sunday through Friday for the summer term; lessons are available 7 days a week in the fall and spring terms.

Please fill out our Private Lesson Inquiry Form to help facilitate private lesson placement. Placement interviews are available with the Director and are scheduled after the completion of the inquiry form.
