Strings and Harp from Manhattan School of Music develop as skilled performers who are familiar with the standard solo, ensemble, and orchestral literature for their instruments.
String majors are provided with a wide array of performance opportunities and courses taught by a faculty of dedicated teachers and performers. The programs of study for string majors are designed to develop skilled performers who are familiar with the standard solo, ensemble, and orchestral literature for their instruments. Students will achieve a high degree of professional competence and appropriate stylistic approaches to the literature of various historical periods.
We are fortunate to have had the American String Quartet in residence at Manhattan School of Music since 1984. The ensemble—whose members are violinists Peter Winograd and Laurie Carney, violist Daniel Avshalomov, and cellist Wolfram Koessel—gives a series of concerts and supervises a group of student chamber ensembles.
In addition to studies with our expert faculty, students are provided additional opportunities to play for and observe world-renowned guest artists.
