Manhattan School of Music launched its groundbreaking Distance Learning program in 1996, the first of its kind at a major conservatory. Since then, using state-of-the-art interactive videoconference technology to enhance MSM students' curriculum, we have also developed programs to connect students, educators and distinguished artists around the globe. Additionally, our live webstreamed concerts and master classes, featuring MSM student ensembles and acclaimed faculty, now attract a worldwide audience.

MSM Distance Learning's award-winning programs, including the Global Conservatory for higher education, and Music Bridges for K-12 & Community audiences, offer master classes, private instruction, and seminars for music students and educators; standards-based classical and jazz programs for K-12; and a variety of selections for lifelong learners. Our Equipment Loaner Program, if needed, can enable your school or community center to participate in all of them.

"The value of videoconferencing for teaching is obvious. If I can't physically be there, at least students can get something of value from comments and examples I might provide. There is also the dramatic effect of the medium itself which has positive inspirational value...."
