The Baccalaureate School for Global Education offers a comprehensive education in Music. Our philosophy is not only to teach future performing artists, but also to teach all students the joy of playing music.
All students perform in a percussion ensemble in the winter and spring concerts, with many opportunities for soloists! Thanks to a generous grant from VH1 Save the Music, students may use any instruments they like, free of charge while attending BSGE. Our BSGE Orchestra also plays on all concerts and outreach concerts here in NYC.
Our curriculum focuses on the understanding the mathematics of rhythm. In addition to performing, students compose rhythm compositions by hand and now have the computer program, Score Cleaner available to them to present their compositions professionally! The HS students also learn to play piano!
In addition, private lessons are available to a limited number of students, free of charge, for group piano, stings and voice.
Please contact Ms. Diana Nikkolos if you wish further information abut the music department.
