Greenwich House Music School provides conservatory-level training in a non-competitive atmosphere for students of all ages. Our faculty has trained in many of the world’s finest institutions, and mentored generations of musicians with a level of artistic excellence unparalleled in the world of community music school education. Many of our piano faculty studied under the leadership of Maestro German Diez (June 18, 1924-July 9, 2014), former Piano Department Chairman and 65 year faculty member. Maestro Diez formed much of what we, at GHMS, consider our teaching method. Our teachers advocate for a rigorous approach to the instrument with an open heart, designed to teach respect for music and a life-long love of the arts. Even though our primary focus has been music, we also provide instruction in dance and the visual arts, as well as provide early childhood education programs. Countless American composers have had works premiered in the Renee Weiler Concert Hall, and the recent addition of our Studio provides an opportunity for our students to learn about the art of sound recording, as well as work with the latest computer programs to create music for the concert stage or media project. There is a strong collegial atmosphere among the staff and faculty, and many of our students maintain a connection with GHMS, returning again and again to continue their studies in a supportive and nurturing environment.
