SOME OF OUR STUDENTS' ACCOMPLISHMENTS


It was only two years ago that our drum student MALACHI SAMEDY was included in Huffington Post’s list of The 12 Most Talented and Tiny Child Prodigies! He is the youngest student to date that we have taught at Mark Murphy's Music, starting his formal studies with us at only four years old. This year Malachi's path took a bit of a new direction as he auditioned and was chosen, out of a total of 22,000 kids, to be part the new Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical, "School of Rock".


Our Solo Artist Program is unique and exclusive to our school. The program showcases students who study both voice and an instrument at the school. It provides the unique opportunity to combine disciplines and to hone the skills as solo performers. Watch this beautiful video of ELOISE WENDT singing and playing "Carolina In My Mind" by James Taylor" from our James Taylor, Carole King themed show in March of 2015 at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC.

 

OUR UNIQUE AND EXCLUSIVE
GUEST ARTIST SERIES


All of our music students have regular access to concerts with some of the world's most accomplished musicians through our unique Guest Artist Series. Students and their families can attend numerous exclusive performances throughout the year, each giving them the chance to watch and listen direct and up front, to ask questions, and engage in a dialogue with artists who are otherwise home on some of the biggest stages in the world.

Our Guest Artists have included musicians like Gretchen Parlato & Alan Hampton, Ben Allison, Jonathan Kreisberg, Rebecca Martin, Larry Grenadier, Gilad Hekselman & Joe Martin, Becca Stevens, Ben Monder, and many more.
