Meet the people who play a critical role at MSM, supporting its world-wide reputation for excellence.

A warm welcome to all —

It has been my honor to serve as President of Manhattan School of Music since 2013, working alongside our extraordinary and dedicated Board of Trustees, Artistic Advisory Council, International Advisory Board, Alumni Council, our Faculty Council and President’s Council.

In this section, you will meet the people who play a critical role in helping ensure that “those who excel, reach the stars” (our School motto) in the warm and supportive environment that MSM is proud to foster.

Please read our Mission Statement and our Strategic Plan to learn about our goals and vision for MSM.

In fall 2018, this extraordinary institution will launch a full season of celebrations marking its centennial. My President’s Letter traces the arc of that first 100 years by relating all the ways that today’s MSM is truly exceptional while also laying out a vision for MSM’s future, as we look beyond the horizon to the School’s second century.

Welcome to 100 years of excellence.


Dr. James Gandre
President, Manhattan School of Music
