String, wind, brass, percussion and accordion players are invited to join our celebrated Community Klezmer Band in the klezmer capital of the world, New York City. Explore a century’s worth of klezmer, examining how the music grew and changed with the migration of Jews from Eastern Europe to North America. Back by popular demand, this course ends with a performance at our third annual Klezmer Hanukkah Party.

BKCM offers tuition-free 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 may be eligible to join many ensembles free of charge; contact our registration desk for more information.
