Manhattan School of Music Reviews

I overall love being a student at Manhattan school of music! The courses available to us are very valuable and the professors are irreplaceable. Academically speaking I am highly impressed with the school. However the reason it did not receive 5 stars was due to the fact that their non music related department is lacking organization and support. It is a very "you're on your own" feel environment when it comes to the non academic portion of the school. That being said, I go to this school for the people (my professors, mentors and colleagues ) and not for their lack of support when it comes to the school offices and officials

Stefon Harris is an incredible leader and educator here! In his first year as the Associate Dean of the jazz program, he has given master classes on his harmonic system almost weekly, while inspiring creativity, ambition, and artistry from students here.

On the flip side, I was unhappy with my trombone teacher for the first semester. He didn’t always come to lessons, owed time, and was not communicative during these cycles of disconnect. I didn’t feel encouraged by his style of teaching and had to draw from other classes, as well as my own passion, in order to improve.
The opportunity provided to students at Manhattan School of Music is incomparable. Because of its location, students are never bored and always have something to do. The administration cares about each student, and they always make decisions based on what is best for the students and not what is best for the school. Some aspects of the school are not completely up-to-date, such as certain technological features, but the school is working on improving them. The faculty are well-known and successful, and are an incredible resource to the students.
