The Brooklyn Music School is a community school for the performing arts, founded in 1912 as the Brooklyn Music School Settlement. It owns and operates an historic four-story building in Fort Greene neighborhood, ( identified as the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District)
The Brooklyn Music School views art as an essential part of basic education and a means by which individuals connect with that unique part of themselves. We make available access to the performing arts regardless of income, age, previous experience, or professional aspirations. In particular, we seek to help those whose artistic voices are least often heard.
