Whether you are a beginner interested in gaining new skills, a lover of music looking for a creative outlet, or a seasoned musician seeking to advance your career, the Extension Division at Mannes College The New School for Music offers you a wide variety of opportunities in music.
Mannes Extension courses and ensembles are open to students, community members, and learners of all musical backgrounds and levels of experience. You can take continuing education courses on a noncredit basis or for general or transfer credit (to be applied to a future degree or certificate program). New School continuing education students have access to the Scherman Music Library and to many free concerts and events held on campus.
Continuing education courses and ensembles meet in the late afternoon and evening at the Mannes Building, 150 West 85th Street. Most courses meet for one hour each week for a 15-week fall or spring term (please note that several courses meet for two hours per week).
