Manhattan School of Music (MSM) Violin Teachers

January 12, 2021, 11:56 PM · Hello all,

I'm applying to MSM for my graduate degree in violin performance, and I'm having to rank 5 preferred studios. There's no way that I can take a lesson with each of the teachers, so in addition to consulting my own mentors and peers, I'm wondering if anyone had any insights on the collegiate-level, studio teachers there. Of course, I'm familiar with many of them, but I think it might be valuable to consider a few people with whom I'm not already familiar. Thank you!

Good luck!
