Studio 57 is an open, teen-driven space that includes opportunities to join an artistic community of peers, work side-by-side with professional musicians, and participate in monthly concerts. Teens ages 14–19 (high school and up) from across NYC gather to choose their own musical adventure. Studio 57 is free, and MetroCards and snacks are provided for every workshop.
Workshops run every Saturday from October through June from 11 AM–3 PM. Students can drop in for an hour or stay for the entire session. Attendance is not mandatory, and participants are welcome to join on as many Saturdays as they would like. All workshops take place in the Resnick Education Wing at Carnegie Hall at 154 West 57th Street.
At Studio 57, teens have the power to choose their own adventure:
Participants must RSVP by 4 PM the day before they plan to attend in order to be added to the security system and have access to the building. Once a participant RSVPs, they do not need to RSVP again for future sessions. A signed permission form from a parent/guardian is required for all participants. Download the permission slip here.
Once a month, Future Music Project participants have the option to take part in a Studio 57 Live concert and invite family and friends to hear their music. Anyone involved in Studio 57 and/or a weekly workshop is eligible to participate, and Future Music Project Ensemble members participate in all Studio 57 Live concerts. Participants must fill out a request form online three weeks prior to their desired concert date detailing the song, performers, and equipment needed for their performance. Carnegie Hall staff reviews all request forms and curates each concert, and students are contacted via email if they are chosen to perform. Every performer is allowed to invite up to five guests.
