NYU Steinhardt: Our mission is to advance knowledge, creativity, and innovation at the crossroads of culture, education, and human development. We have award-winning faculty and alumni engaged in ground-breaking research and artistic creation, at the cutting edge of their professions.
The Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions was established in the Steinhardt School at New York University in 1925. In 1968, the Department merged with the New York College of Music, the oldest conservatory of music in New York City. Since that merger, the Department has functioned both as the conservatory of music and a locus of research in the performing arts. Today, 1,500 students – baccalaureate through doctoral — major in: classical, jazz and music theatre performance; music composition (jazz, film scoring, multi-media, and traditional), music technology, and music business; music ed, dance ed, and educational theatre education; performing arts administration; and music therapy and drama therapy guided by more than 400 faculty. Faculty and students share a spirit of openness and innovation encouraging the pursuit of high artistic goals. Department interests cross school lines and bring performers and composers together with choreographers, directors, actors, librettists, and filmmakers in innovative, collaborative projects often reviewed by the New York media. Music business students study with world-renowned faculty through private lessons and participate in ensembles, master classes and live performances. Distinguished Department alumni include: Jazz great Wayne Shorter, Tony Award winners Cy Coleman and Betty Comden, composer and conductor Tania Leon, music technologist Enoch Light, and Academy Award, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner John Patrick Shanley.
