Lucy Moses School students experience world-class performance opportunities in Merkin Hall, Ann Goodman Recital Hall and other NYC venues. Beginners are welcome!

Here's what makes Lucy Moses School unique:

Student Care — Whether you or your child are studying a musical instrument for the first time or looking to improve, our matchmaking approach lays a solid and engaging foundation. The Lucy Moses School staff carefully matches students of all ages with faculty members suited to their skill level, schedule, learning style and musical interests.
