• Count Me In

    The Count Me In afterschool initiative meets the needs of New York City middle school singers, many of whom have never studied music before and whose schools are looking to build strong choral programs. Students from across the city receive instruction and training in Carnegie Hall’s Resnick Education Wing, preparing them for auditions to performing arts high schools. Meanwhile, school staff and parents attend informational sessions to learn more about how to support their young musicians. Carnegie Hall also supports the middle schools themselves, providing training and mentorship designed to help these schools establish and build their own programs.
