Our Mission

The New York Music Cooperative provides high-quality music instruction to all communities within the New York City metropolitan area. We assist musicians of all ages, backgrounds, financial circumstances, and skill-levels – and do so in a safe, positive, and collaborative community- environment, where everyone feels welcome, comfortable and connected.

A few of our excellent teachers!

In addition to educating our students, we focus on cultivating the financial and technical resources of our members; supporting the growth of social and economic justice. We are also dedicated to fostering the ever growing culture of New York City, both through our students’ creative growth and success, and by providing member facilitated workshops and performances.
