Our newly renovated music building provides our students with a welcoming atrium, Steinway pianos in all practice rooms, a music library which has more than 35,000 scores, 30,000 books and 20,000 recordings, and an award-winning LeFrak Concert Hall, celebrated for its acoustics and the Maynard-Walker Memorial organ.
