The New School is offering a music scholarship to prospective 7th- through 12th-grade students interested in a unique music education experience.
Here at The New School, our goal is to provide students with unforgettable learning and performance opportunities. We take pride in a diverse music program that offers a one of a kind curriculum. Music students are offered a choice of five performance ensembles covering genres in Rock, Funk, Jazz, R&B, and Pop music. In addition to live performance opportunities, students will take part in songwriting, recording sessions, music videos, and masterclasses from the region’s and the world's greatest musicians.
Music scholarship recipients will have access to individualized instruction that is tailored to their needs by quality educators and professional musicians. Private lessons are also available to all students and cover a variety of instruments and topics including instrumental development, music theory, improvisation, audio production, and songwriting.
I love The New School's music program. It's very self-driven, but the teachers here always challenge you to make you better at what you do.

An audition, in-person or by video, is required to be considered for the music scholarship. Instrumentalists and vocalists should prepare a 30-second piece for the audition.
Financial Assistance and Tuition Reset
We are committed to giving all families the opportunity to explore the potential of an independent school. The New School has reset our tuition to make an education at The New School more accessible to all families. In addition to our tuition reset, we also provide academic scholarships and a financial assistance program. We believe a family’s interest in The New School should not be limited by financial resources.
Our Musicians Work with Grammy Nominees
In December of 2020, The New School's Ensemble III recorded with Grammy-nominated musician, Dr. Jeffrey Murdock for a special Holiday performance of Donny Hathaway’s, “This Christmas."
Our music facility is designed to prepare students for the real-world music scenarios. In addition to live performance, we are equipped with professional quality instruments and recording equipment for student use.
