Coming Soon: The Preschool at TBMS

Opening Fall 2019: The Preschool at TBMS

Meet our new Director of The Preschool at TBMS!

Laying the foundation for your child’s lifelong love of music
TBMS has been providing high quality music education and experiences for 93 years so it seemed like a natural next step to bring our experience, expertise, and passion to the preschool classroom. We will be creating a preschool experience that uses music to encourage and explore the social, emotional, cognitive, and physiological development of young children. In addition to consistent and regular classes with music and movement specialists from our own early childhood and traditional music faculty, the academic curriculum will be infused with Dalcroze and Orff Schulwerk based methods, among others. We are committed to creating a culture of ongoing professional development for the classroom teachers so that they are skilled and comfortable using song and movement at every possible turn, especially transitions of course!

It has long since been proven that integrating music into early learning creates neurological pathways which increase children’s capacity to learn. At TBMS we are also eager to create a musical learning environment that supports the development of compassionate, empathetic, and wholehearted human beings. Music, more than any other art form, has this ability. It’s the universal language every person on the planet speaks.

We will be accepting applications for children ages 2-5 years beginning in September 2018 for entrance in the fall of 2019. Contact us at for more information or call 212-753-8811 ext. 217 to speak with Executive Director Lorna Jane Norris about the program details as they develop.
