The interaction between a single teacher and a single student is at the core of the Bloomingdale philosophy of music education. Each student's experience begins with speaking to a member of Bloomingdale's skilled registration staff to identify the needs of the student. Does the student respond best to a more structured teacher or one who is more flexible? Is the student interested in classical, jazz, or rock? With each person, we take the time to match up teachers and students based not only on schedule, but also on learning styles and preferences.
Our unique approach to teaching music involves communication and goal setting through our Planning Together program. Students, parents, and faculty meet at the beginning of each term to set goals. Our faculty members then design a program that meets the unique needs of each student-adapting to his or her challenge level, assessing technical strengths and weaknesses, and creating an atmosphere tailored to the student's own learning style.
Bloomingdale's faculty is among the finest at New York City community schools. Over 85% of our faculty holds an advanced degree in their field. Faculty members are entrusted with the mission and core values of the school and their daily work represents Bloomingdale's educational and artistic achievements. In order to assemble a talented and dedicated faculty, Bloomingdale maintains high selection standards when hiring teaching artists. Not only are Bloomingdale instructors committed to teaching, they are also active musicians and performers.
