Classes

A curated ecosystem of classes for the talent of the future.


We offer a carefully curated selection of classes, both group and one-on-one instruction, all aimed at teaching students the many elements of music in a non-competitive and lighthearted environment.

Be focus

One to one class


In our one-to-one sessions, you will receive your instructor's undivided attention and focus during the entire lesson. One-to-one sessions are a crucial component to a students personal and artistic growth. It is here where a student can strengthen their individual goals and specific needs without the pressure or distractions of a group class. Instructors will carefully assess a student's strengths and weaknesses to design individual lessons that specifically address those needs. Each session will build on the progress of the student. Instructors are dedicated to seeing students improve after each session while also exploring a student's individual talents. One-to-one lessons are available for piano, flute, cello, clarinet, and violin.

Masterclasses


With our masterclasses, students will have the unique opportunity to be taught by some of the most recognized musicians in the world. Geared towards advanced students, the masterclasses are a wonderful way to gain unique insights, methods, and constructive advice from a sophisticated and knowledgeable musician. Often held in small group settings, students should be prepared to actively participate with the instructor and fellow students. Selected students will have the chance to perform with the masterclass teacher. Masterclasses are part of the program packages and are available to all (students not enrolled in CreArtED).

NYC field trips


New York City is filled with countless world renowned performing arts and musical centers. Located in Long Island City, we take full advantage of our ideal location. Through partnerships with Carnegie Hall, Opera America, Ethical Society, Lincoln Center, and Steinway & Sons, we organize various student excursions and field trips to different performances and activities. Instructors begin teaching lessons and activities related to the performances they will be seeing days in advance. Fully immersed in the details of the performance, students will experience music concerts like never before.

Music production & composition


Just as it is important for a student to learn the history and foundations of music, it is equally important to study where music is going. We offer digital and multimedia production classes where students will create their own music, learn how to make professional recordings and share their music. Instructors specializing in digital and multimedia practices will teach students the basics of music production and composition. With this class, students will get a window into the modern and ever-changing era of music we live in.

Online Course


We offer a variety of courses online to supplement in-person classes. Online courses are a great way to keep students engaged between classes. Taking advantage of all you can do with technology today, we make sure online classes are always fun and engaging for students. We believe the key to online learning is not to offer stand-alone classes strictly online but instead offer online classes as complementary to the in-person classes a student is already taking. This mix between online and in-person will help students get an all encompassing music education both inside and outside a classroom.
