Founded by Jen Herman and Marty Isenberg, the Clinton Hill Music School doesn’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.


Director, 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.



* 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

Say hello to our new teachers!

CHMS is excited to welcome several new dynamic teachers to our roster! We will be adding their profiles to our ‘teachers’ page shortly.

Our students appeared on Sesame Street!

In October of 2016, students from the Clinton Hill Music School filmed a segment for “Sesame Street.” Our episode finally aired on HBO in the spring on 2017 and will air sometime this fall on PBS. Although they only used about 5 seconds of what we filmed, we’re very proud to see our students on national television showing off their skills. Way to go, CHMS fam!
