Third Street Music School Settlement
Since 1894, Third Street Music School has provided New Yorkers from pre-school to senior citizens with exceptional training in music and dance. The oldest community music school in the country, Third Street provides everything from group instruction to individual classes in a friendly space on East 11th Street. Ensemble playing is at the heart of the Third Street experience and offers something for students of all ages with bands, orchestras, choirs, dance ensembles, chamber groups, jazz combos and rock bands. Children begin classes as toddlers, and many continue through high school. Well known performers “moonlight” at Third Street, where they can teach eager students in a flexible format. At age 120, Third Street still rocks, and feels more like a happy family than a school.
