About Us

About Us

The Clinton Hill Music School has been serving its neighboring communities since it’s inception in 2012. We provide an outlet for both children and adults to express themselves and the opportunity for them to follow their own musical curiosities. Founder, Marty Isenberg, has watched countless students overcome personal hurdles to give stirring performances in recitals and master classes and even go on to be accepted into competitive music programs such as LaGuardia High School and the Chamber Music Conference of the East.

 

Teaching Philosophy

Every student is unique and learns in different ways. Having studied with so many great masters of music, movement, and pedagogy, we have gained a vast pool of knowledge and resources. Our approach to teaching is not locked into any specific method. We draw from our training and experiences to discover what inspires each student.

 

A Note from Marty 

As a firm believer in the power of music to help people transcend and transform their lives, it has always been my mission to be both a great performer as well as an educator and advocate for music. In 2016 and 2017, CHMS was able to crowd-fund enough support to provide free scholarships for 6 students per year. My dream for Clinton Hill Music School is to continue to grow and be a force for good in the lives of our students.
