Introduction 3
anhattan School of Music
prepares students to
be stewards of the great
music tradition and
catalytic thinkers who will
reimagine the profession. The school is a microcosm
of New York City’s musical life. It is a multicultural
institution that values all musical idioms and provides
an environment where they thrive together, as they
do in our great city. Manhattan School of Music is
dedicated to nurturing the complete musician. Its outstanding faculty of teaching artists is committed to
the realization of each student’s talent and development
as a person. Students come to MSM with dedication
and passion and leave with the confidence and maturity
to make a contribution to the art we all love.
We offer degree and diploma programs at the
undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. Majors
include all orchestral instruments, voice, piano,
accompanying, jazz, composition, saxophone, guitar,
organ, and conducting.
This is Manhattan School of Music, offering the
rigorous musical training of the conservatory and the
rich musical life of the city.
New York City is inexhaustible, and always new.
It is a magnet for the most talented, the most
ambitious, the most uncompromising, who come
to make their mark, to make something new, and
to breathe the same air as others like them. A New
York City performance is a must, both for aspiring
performers and for the world’s greatest soloists
and ensembles who want to stay in the public eye.
The city’s musical offerings range from incisive,
glittering performances of established repertoire
by the Philharmonic, the American Ballet
Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, Jazz at Lincoln
Center, and Carnegie Hall’s visiting orchestras to
innovative programs by those bent on broadening
the repertoire—the City Opera, the City Ballet,
the American Symphony Orchestra—to genrebending series and festivals celebrating the present
moment—World Music at Zankel Hall, the Bang
on a Can marathon, and cutting-edge international
offerings at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next
Wave Festival and the Lincoln Center Festival.
Add to this hundreds of chamber music and jazz
concerts, cabaret and dance, and then there’s Broadway!
T h e C i t y i s O u r St a g e
Manhattan School of Music’s more than 400
annual concerts, opera productions, and recitals are
not only excellent opportunities for our students
to perform, they are considered some of the finest
musical events in New York City.
Our Community Outreach programs give students
valuable experience performing in public schools
and public spaces throughout the city—from
corporate lobbies, museums, and churches to senior
centers, hospitals, and shelters, from South Street
Seaport and Times Square to Central Park and the
Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

Robert Sirota, President,
Manhattan School of Music
Leading by Example
Manhattan School of Music, like its president,
composer Robert Sirota, distinguishes itself by its
innovation and passion. Brimming with energy
and ideas, Bob Sirota is a president who truly leads
by example. A complete musician whose training
includes degrees from Oberlin and Harvard and
studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, this dynamic
New Yorker came home to Manhattan and to the
presidency of MSM in 2005. He is a proven leader,
as the past director of Boston University’s School
of Music and of the Peabody Conservatory, and he
brings the added dimension to the job of knowing
the art of music from the creator’s perspective.
Under President Sirota’s leadership, and with the
dedication of an outstanding faculty, Manhattan
School of Music offers solid professional music
training and continues to put forth fresh artists
and ideas. Just as his inspiration brings musicians
together in the performance of a new work, Bob’s
vision of a rigorous yet nurturing environment
is being realized—student by student, program by
program—daily at MSM. He is devoted to providing an educational experience for a generation of
musicians who will reap the benefits, personally and
professionally, throughout their lives and careers.
The Vision 7
I’m composing a music school. It’s about combining art and disparate elements to make something rich and coherent.
I am very fortunate to work with a group of students who are passionate about their music-making, who are
extraordinarily committed to their profession, and who endeavor to be articulate advocates for the arts. It is a profound legacy our artist faculty are contributing towards and one that we all champion.
Robert H. Smith Jr., Assistant Dean,

The Talent 11
r e a l i z i n g pot e n t i a l
Manhattan School of Music draws talented
individuals from all over the world who are
passionate about making music—classical
and jazz, vocal and instrumental, performance
and composition. Entrance auditions are held
to identify students who possess the drive,
potential, dedication, and talent to become
world-class musicians.
Just as New York is a magnet for the finest
musicians in the world, MSM attracts those who
strive to be the best, and then nurtures their
ability to do so.
Faculty 13
Master Classes
Each season, internationally renowned guest artists
present master classes. Students have the opportunity
to play for and observe some of the most accomplished musicians in their field. Recent master classes
at Manhattan School of Music have included:
Martina Arroyo,

Manhattan School of Music’s reputation as one
of the best conservatories in the country rests upon
its outstanding faculty of devoted musicians and
mentors. Our distinguished teachers are dedicated
to shaping over 800 students from 40 countries
into world-class musicians.
They are some of the world’s best-known performing
artists, who bring their depth of experience to
Manhattan School of Music. They are acclaimed
soloists, conductors, and composers. They hold
prominent positions in New York’s most renowned
ensembles: the New York Philharmonic, the
Metropolitan Opera, the Chamber Music Society
of Lincoln Center, the Lincoln Center Jazz
Orchestra, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and
the orchestras of the New York City Opera and
New York City Ballet. They are passionate teaching
artists, committed to nurturing talent and bringing
out the best in each of their students.

Curriculum 15
The Curriculum
An international conservatory granting Bachelor
of Music, Master of Music, and Doctor of Musical
Arts degrees, MSM trains students in performance
and composition and provides a core curriculum in
music theory, music history, and the humanities.
Our four-year undergraduate program consists
of the major field of study, ensemble performance,
course work in music, and core classes in the
humanities. The Master’s program is a two-year
curriculum of course work in musical subjects,
ensemble performance, and the major field of
study. The Doctor of Musical Arts curriculum
prepares the candidate for a performing career
and for teaching at the college level. We also offer
a dual degree program with Teachers College at
Columbia University, which grants an M.M.
and M.A. in Music Education, with K-12 music
teacher certification.
Manhattan School of Music’s Professional Studies
Certificate Program is for students pursuing
instrumental or vocal study on an advanced level
and preparing for major competitions, auditions,
or career entry positions. A one-year program
for accomplished performers who have earned a
Master‘s degree, a postgraduate diploma, or the
equivalent, it offers intensive study in accompanying,
brass, composition, guitar, organ, orchestral
performance, piano, strings, voice, or woodwinds.
With innovative curricula in orchestral and
chamber music, jazz, opera, and musical theater,
MSM provides the artistic and technical training
necessary for the aspiring professional musician.
Students in the opera program refine their
technique while gaining exposure before New York
City audiences by performing in opera scenes,
community outreach concerts, and two full-length
productions each year.
Our program of study for jazz majors is designed
to develop skilled performers, composers,
and arrangers in preparation for a career in jazz.
We offer the classical performer intensive coaching
and ample performance opportunities ranging from
small chamber ensembles through full orchestra.
We believe there is no better preparation for
a career than the performance experience and
rigorous training that MSM offers. We give our
students the best chance to go as far as their talent
and determination will take them.
For me MSM feels just
extraordinary. A lot of institutions are very square and have the attitude, ‘This is how we do it: You’re a piano student. You’re a piano freshman. What are you doing conducting? Why do you want to do this?’ Here they don’t ask those questions. They just ask, ‘Why not?’

Alumni 17
Studying trumpet at Manhattan School of Music gave me insights on how to be flexible and have a diverse, exciting career. In the past few months I’ve worked with the Metropolitan
Opera, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and indie pop artist Sufjan Stevens, as well as working on my own personal
recording projects. At MSM I began to think outside the
box musically, and that’s the path that I’ve been on.
Vadim K arpinos ’00
Percussionist, youngest member ever hired by the
Chicago Symphony:
“The Manhattan School of Music percussion
department is one of the best in the country. My
teachers helped me realize my dream of playing
with a major symphony orchestra.”
St e fo n H a r r i s ’ 9 7
Vibraphonist, Grammy-nominated recording
“Manhattan School of Music gave me the
opportunity to explore the diversity of both classical
and jazz music and find the direction I wanted
to go artistically.”
Shuler Hensley ’90
Baritone, Tony award-winner as Jud in Oklahoma!
on Broadway, the monster in Mel Brooks’ musical
Young Frankenstein:
“School productions gave me my first real taste of
New York theater, and now I’m constantly running
across Manhattan School alumni—people I work
with, directors, and conductors.”
ALUMNI C a r e e r P a t h s
Manhattan School of Music’s strengths make it an
exceptional place from which to launch a career.
We believe there is no better preparation than to
surround students with opportunities to create and
perform and to experience great performances.
Our alumni are successful in every aspect of musical
life—performing, composing, teaching, producing,
and recording. Many are among the most
distinguished artists on stage today in opera houses,
concert halls, jazz clubs, and Broadway theaters.
Susan Graham ’87
World-renowned mezzo-soprano:
“Manhattan School of Music provides a nurturing
atmosphere, where the budding artist can discover
his or her true direction and strengths, and it offers
high-quality, high-profile performing opportunities.
It gave me invaluable master classes with renowned
singers, and my opera performances—which were
reviewed in the New York Times—set me off on a
very satisfying career journey. I’ll be forever grateful
to Manhattan School of Music.”
Jazz 19
J a z z s pok e n h e r e
Manhattan School of Music is fluent in the great
American language of jazz. Like language, jazz
develops through performance. The comprehensive
training we offer in jazz performance, composition,
and arrangement is designed to spur that development.
Though we were one of the first conservatories to
offer a full jazz program, the curriculum has been
completely restructured and broadened under the
leadership of program chair and Assistant Dean
Justin DiCioccio, to include precollege through
D.M.A. students.
Coached by Justin DiCioccio, the Manhattan
School of Music Jazz Orchestra, whose alumni
include Jason Moran and Jane Monheit, has
been named the “Best College Jazz Orchestra”
by Downbeat magazine. The Jazz Orchestra
spreads the word at prestigious jazz festivals and
venues, through CD releases (five to date), and
by accompanying such soloists as Wynton Marsalis,
Jon Faddis, and Phil Woods.
Directing the Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, Bobby
Sanabria celebrates “la tradicion” and pays homage
to native speakers Mario Bauza, Dizzy Gillespie,
Paquito D’Rivera, and Tito Puente.
Meanwhile, the Jazz Philharmonic is busy creating
a new dialect through original works combining
jazz rhythms and harmonies with contemporary
classical techniques.
If you want to add your voice to the continuing jazz
conversation, talk with us.
Recent alumni include John Benitez, Ryan Kisor,
Jane Monheit, Jason Moran, Chris Potter, Miguel
Zenon, Obed Calvaire, Roland Barber, Rahsaan
Barber, Stefon Harris, and Kim Thompson.
As an undergraduate, I studied with Justin all four years. It’s just pure fun working with that cat. You really learn
a lot from him. He’s serious about his teaching—about making everything feel like a groove. Especially for my career, this is the place for me to be. There are sessions all over the place, and you can hear music all the time, whether it be jazz, opera at the Met,
or hip-hop at the Village Underground.
It’s all over the place. Two dollars on the train and you’re good to go.

Piano 21
Every single teacher and mentor I have had at MSM has been an inspiration to me and has challenged me to think beyond the books and beyond the notes to explore the minds of those composers and musicians who inspired all of us to come here to study.
Charity Wicks, Piano student
T h e Sk i l l e d P e r fo r m e r
Manhattan School of Music’s programs for piano
majors offer an in-depth study of the vast repertoire
for the instrument, developing interpretive skills
and emphasizing performance in all styles. They
are designed to develop skilled performers familiar
with piano repertoire, performance practices, and
interpretive traditions. In addition to studies with
our expert faculty, students have the opportunity
to play for and observe world-renowned guest
artists. Recent master classes have included Yefim
Bronfman, Richard Goode, Stephen Hough,
Russell Sherman, Philippe Entremont, Lang Lang,
and Ursula Oppens.
The Ensemble 23
What sets MSM apart is a positive environment where young, talented musicians can feel supported and encouraged to do what they love.
Hannah Min, Violin student
The Engaged Ensemble
In today’s orchestra world, “playing your part” has
been redefined. Manhattan School of Music’s
Orchestral Performance Program addresses the
larger role orchestral musicians can play in the lives
of their ensembles. The program seeks to produce
first and foremost expert orchestral players, but also
orchestral citizens willing and able to participate
in their ensembles’ artistic matters, community
relations, and audience development. We are proud
to have a hand in shaping the engaged orchestra
of the 21st century.
Glenn Dicterow, shown on next page, chairs the
program, and teachers include principal players
of the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan
Opera Orchestra, and other major New York City
orchestras. It offers a high-level repertoire
class, master classes and coaching ensembles with
guests from orchestras visiting New York, and
performance experience under internationally
acclaimed conductors in the Manhattan School of
Music Symphony and Chamber Sinfonia.
Each of Manhattan School of Music’s other large
classical ensembles focuses on a particular repertoire:
Opera Orchestra,
the ensemble for MSM’s highly regarded
opera productions
Jazz Philharmonic,
where jazz and classical music meet
Composers’ Orchestra,
performing the work of our own
composition students
Philharmonia Orchestra,

The Orchestral Performance Program gives us the oppor- tunity to work with the best. What better people to learn from than people who have succeeded in the field? One of the great things about this school in general, and about the program, is the environment. It’s very friendly, and it allows for growth and artistic development at the highest level. It changed my life.
Daniel Andai, Violin student
Every young instrumentalist should receive the essential training in ensemble playing that Manhattan School of Music offers. It will broaden their horizons and make them more complete musicians.

Chamber Music 27
Chamber music is the ultimate collaboration. It is my privilege to guide our talented students through the process of interpreting, rehearsing, performing, and, ideally, experiencing this medium’s unique powers of expression. Linda Chesis, Chair of Woodwind Department
Co l l a b o r a t i v e A r t i s t r y
At Manhattan School of Music collaborative artistry
is a vital part of study and performance. Almost every
classical instrumentalist and vocalist takes part in
chamber music and ensemble performance. MSM
has a fixed time in the daily schedule reserved for
chamber music when the whole school participates in
instrumental and vocal ensembles.
Every semester, nearly 100 chamber music ensembles
ranging from duos to octets are coached. Chamber
music faculty comprises 40 of the school’s
most experienced chamber musicians, including
players from the Juilliard, Emerson, Mendelssohn,
and Guarneri string quartets, the New York
Philharmonic, and the Metropolitan Opera. Our
prestigious resident ensembles, the world-renowned
American String Quartet and woodwind quintet
Windscape, coach and give frequent performances.
Robert Mann, founder of the Juilliard String
Quartet, gives a series of master classes every semester.
In the winter and spring we hold the Lillian
Fuchs Chamber Music Competition. Winners
perform at the gala concert, which kicks off our
popular Chamber Music Festivals—weekend-long
celebrations featuring string, piano, woodwind,
guitar, and vocal student ensembles.
Contemporary Music 29
A program like MSM’s Contemporary Performance Program is long overdue in the American conservatory. Finally, there is a chance to be directly involved in writing and playing the music of today.
Andy Kozar, Trumpet student
MSM has long embraced the teaching and
performance of contemporary classical music as
central to our mission. In our new Contemporary
Performance Program, we break down the
barrier between creator and interpreter. Students
radically engage the music of our time through
expert instruction in contemporary performance
technique and training in improvisation and
composition. The program opens out to new
performance modes and models, exploring world
music and multimedia presentation.
Our faculty is drawn from New York City’s leading
new music interpreters, who share their insight
into the great works and composers of our time
and the joys of bringing new music into the world.
Fernando Arroyo, Composition student
Composer Richard Danielpour, shown at right, conferring with students
fo r g i n g a v o i c e
MSM’s vibrant composition program embraces a
diversity of styles and approaches in the creation of
new music. The school’s deep pool of performers
and culture of innovation means there are ample
opportunities for student composers to hear their
new works.
Composition 31
After meeting with the composition department and hearing the music of the teachers, I chose MSM. We have the composers’ concerts, we can put together a recital, and there are various competitions. I like the variety of compositional styles among the students and the teachers, so that there’s really a teacher for everyone. You can approach any teacher here and get feedback.
Voice 33
Vo i c e s c o m e a l i v e a t m s m
Manhattan School of Music gives full voice to
opera. We are renowned for the excellence of
our voice and opera studies program and for
our preparation of the full singing artist—from
classroom, to teaching studio, to center stage.
Fully staged, full-length opera productions by
our Opera Theater, produced by Assistant Dean
Gordon Ostrowski, have been praised by the New
York Times for their significant contribution to
operatic life in New York City. Our students, said
Opera News, “for the most part outdo themselves
when given the chance to sing challenging new
roles.” Opera Theater singers round out their
experience in performances of operatic scenes
throughout the year, and in outreach training that
includes participation in a children’s opera.
The essential arts of stagecraft and dramatic interpretation are honed by Artistic Director Dona D.
Vaughn’s Opera Workshop curriculum, and fully displayed in her Undergraduate Opera Theater Program.
In the wings, our voice faculty, chaired by
Maitland Peters, together with our distinguished
academic faculty, provides comprehensive
behind-the-scenes training for all of our voice
majors: vocal technique, musicianship, music
theory and history, piano, choral singing, diction,
and an introduction to vocal literature in English,
French, and German. Our full range of study
supports both a Baroque Aria Ensemble and the
American Musical Theater Ensemble.
It is no wonder our students and graduates
participate in leading apprenticeship programs
and festivals in the United States, and go on to
major American and international opera houses.
We are proud of such established voice alumni as
Ned Barth, Judith Blazer, Lauren Flanigan, Susan
Graham, Shuler Hensley, Catherine Malfitano,
Sanford Sylvan, Timothy Nolen, Dawn Upshaw, Jon
Fredric West, and Dolora Zajick. We are equally
as excited about the developing careers of such
singers as Elaine Alvarez, Elizabeth Batton, John
Gaston, Brandon Jovanovich, Jose Llana, Laquita
Mitchell, Simon O’Neill, and David Won.
It still amazes me the people I get to work with and the professional careers they’ve had. It really helps
to know their experience in the real world, so when I get out there I’ll know what to expect.

Student Life 35
M a kING c o n n e c t i o n s
Manhattan School of Music is a diverse,
international community of students from all over
the world, brought together to pursue music.
Our residential community enables students to
make connections that will last a lifetime.
MSM’s new 19-story residence hall—with 60
practice rooms, a well-equipped fitness room, and
a beautiful central student lounge—overlooks
Manhattan’s Riverside Park and offers some of
the best views of the city. It has Ethernet jacks
and private phone lines for each student, 24-hour
security, and card-operated laundry facilities. Next
door is the Mitzi Newhouse Pavilion, the school’s
dining hall and gathering place.
You can really make the dorm room your own. At your
disposal you have 24-hour practice rooms, a lounge, and a passageway to and from school so you can avoid
carrying instruments through the rain or snow.
Maya Siobhan Flock, Voice student
Approximately 380 undergraduate and graduate
students live in the G. Chris and SungEun
Andersen Residence Hall, in both single and double
rooms. Practice rooms (most with Steinways) are on
every floor, and the entire second floor is dedicated
to practice rooms that can be used at any hour,
day or night. The Residence Hall is staffed with
a full-time Residence Life Director and student
Resident Assistants on each floor.
In addition to new dormitories and practice rooms,
MSM’s G. Chris and SungEun Andersen Hall
includes a new music library and two extraordinary
new performance spaces: the William R. and Irene
D. Miller Recital Hall, a state-of-the-art recital hall
linked to the school’s recording studio for student
and faculty recitals, and the Alan M. and Joan
Taub Ades Performance Space, with cutting-edge
light, audio, and multimedia-projection systems,
for everything from orchestra rehearsals, opera
workshops, and cabaret to more intimate jazz and
chamber music concerts.
The Office of Student and Residence Life sponsors
educational, cultural, and social activities on
campus and offers discount tickets to the astonishing
range of musical and cultural experiences available
in New York—Broadway shows, ballet, museums,
film, the symphony, opera, and jazz—all vital for
performing musicians.
We share our upper Manhattan neighborhood with
Columbia University, Barnard College, Columbia
Teachers College, Bank Street College, Union and
Jewish theological seminaries, and the Cathedral
of St. John the Divine.
