Our Mission

The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music aims to transform lives and build community through the expressive, educational and therapeutic powers of music.

Our Vision

We envision a world where every New Yorker, regardless of age, income or level of ability, has access to high-quality music instruction and music therapy. We believe that neighborhoods traditionally under-served by New York City cultural institutions need and deserve hands-on musical experiences, and that by creating these opportunities we are building a more vibrant, interconnected city.
