    Training That Matches Your Passion

    Mannes students receive unparalleled training through valuable relationships with world class performing faculty and through Mannes’ rich academic tradition in theoretical and aural skills. Private instruction is fully integrated into each course of study.

    A Community of Artists

    Mannes' move in 2015 into newly designed facilities means we will co-exist in Arnhold Hall with Jazz and Drama; within The New School with Parsons; within Greenwich Village, the center of downtown experimental music; and within New York, one of the great world centers of Art and Music.  

    Serving the Community

    We offer training and cutting edge programs for every age and level. Mannes Prep offers pre-college music training for children 4-18 at every level. Mannes Next offers intensive music training for adults.
