Vocalists and string, guitar and mandolin players are invited to experience the historicAmerican music of bluegrass. Taught by expert bluegrass musicians, in a fun jam-style approach, students experience the joys of leading, improvising and accompanying traditional folk songs and old-time music. Students who join this class should be familiar with G, C and D major scales and have a minimum of three years of private lessons on their instrument. Workshops culminate in a jamstyle performance at BCKM and at NYC bluegrass music festivals.

BKCM offers reduced-tuition enrollment for this class to all students currently taking private lessons. For further details on this program, please speak to a registrar.


BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages, levels and experience. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges. Taught by experts in the field, our ensembles include performance opportunities and a chance to connect with a community of other instrumentalists who are interested in developing their artistry. Students enrolled in our private lessons are eligible to join many ensembles at a highly discounted rate. Contact our registration desk for more information.
