This fall, the Third Street Music School Settlement celebrated the opening of The Center for Music Theory and Composition at its school located in the heart of New York City’s East Village. With a fully-equipped music technology lab and dedicated classrooms, Third Street’s Center for Music Theory and Composition serves as a resource for learning music theory, from beginner to advanced, and as a hub for students to study composition and create original music in community with other musicians. Third Street has developed a ten-year, 32-week detailed curriculum reflecting the official requirements for the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory of Music Achievement Program for which Third Street is both a Founding Member and Assessment Center. In keeping with its settlement roots, Third Street has been offering theory and composition classes to its students at a discounted rate to ensure access and excellence for all.
