Partner Program

Complement and Support

At the heart of Bloomingdale School of Music's mission is providing open-access to music education to those in the local community. Partner Programming looks different throughout the city, but Bloomingdale wants to complement and support the programs that are already in place in our local schools. Proving high-quality after school music instruction, Bloomingdale's partner model creates classrooms where none exist, help the music teacher who does not have enough time with their students and opens our doors to neighbors and friends.

2017-2018 School Partners

The School at Columbia - After their school day ends, students from The School at Columbia travel to Bloomingdale for their music classes. One-hour long group classes focused in violin, keyboard, recorder and vocal instruction run for a full year to compliment the in school music instruction students receive during the day. Interested TSC students can register through the TSC After School program, Katy Saintil, ksaintil@theschool.columbia.edu.

The Bloomingdale Family Program - In 2016, Bloomingdale School of Music began it's partnership with Bloomingdale Family Program, a headstart educational program for children from low income backgrounds. Founded around the same time, this natural partnership came from a BSM student's experience of volunteering with BFP and recognizing that there was a need for music instruction. BSM faculty member Shoshana Vogel provides classes for both students and parents, focusing on simple music making skills through hand percussion and vocalization, using both English and Spanish language songs and fun movement!
