Founder, Marty Isenberg, has spent the better part of his life immersed in music. He attended the School for Jazz at New School University and received his master’s degree from New York University. His passion for music has taken him across the globe, playing in numerous orchestras, Broadway shows, music festivals and touring with bands.


At Clinton Hill Music School, we don’t just provide the chance to play an instrument, we strive to motivate and inspire our students to expand what they believe they are capable of and to push the boundaries of what they think is possible. Our methodology combines fun tactile learning, personalized lesson plans, and reinforcing music fundamentals.



* Creates an enjoyable atmosphere where kids and adults have fun while learning


* Fosters a sense of community of teachers, students, and their families who learn and grow together


* Raises the bar by setting high standards for our students and providing support along the way
