KeyNote Coachings

KeyNote Coaching seeks to enhance existing band and orchestra programs by providing targeted sectional rehearsals to work on repertoire and improve instrumental technique.


CityStrings, held during February vacation, unites guitar students to supplement their studies, increase their musical proficiency and make new friends. A free 4-day guitar intensive in Harlem welcomes M&F guitar students in Grades 3-8 from partner schools. CityStrings focuses on musicianship and technique in addition to art, dance and theater workshops.

SAI Partnership with the DOE 

The Summer Arts Institute presented by the NYC Department of Education is a tuition-free, intensive arts program for public school students entering grades 8-12, held at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts. M&F is proud to serve as the lead musical partner supporting the strings program. We also actively identify, encourage, and prepare our eligible M&F students to audition for this exceptional experience.

Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts is a unique arts summer camp in the NYC area that brings together the rigor of artistic practice and the playfulness of a classic summer camp.
