The New School Mannes

At Mannes School of Music, we’ve transformed the traditional music conservatory by integrating rigorous classical training with boundary-pushing performance experiences and opportunities to collaborate across disciplines. Mentored by world-class artists and educators, Mannes students imbibe an entrepreneurial outlook and prepare to chart their own course in today’s ever-evolving music landscape. While some Mannes graduates work in the world’s premier orchestras, ensembles and opera houses, others launch their own solo or collaborative enterprises, making their unique impact felt as innovative music makers, business leaders, scholars and educators.
