Bloomingdale School of Music's (BSM) mission is to provide access to high-quality music education for all its students, regardless of background. BSM was established in 1964 to improve conditions in the Upper West Side community through affordable music lessons in the Bloomingdale neighborhood. Today, roughly 650 students of all ages participate in group classes, private lessons, chamber music and ensembles, each week at our home on W. 108th Street, and another 200 through school and community partnerships. BSM also presents more than 20 Free Faculty concerts and nearly 100 student concerts each year for our neighbors and music fans from across the city. Bloomingdale maintains an unwavering commitment to providing support for individuals from underserved communities, not only to prepare talented students for more advanced musical study, but also to open doors to the musically curious who may otherwise be financially prohibited from taking up an instrument. Last year, Bloomingdale offered more than $250,000 in scholarships for its students believing that access should be available to everyone.
