    The Department and Music Business Program:

    The Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions (MPAP) was established in the Steinhardt School at New York University in 1925. In 1968, the Department merged with the New York College of Music, the oldest conservatory of music in New York City. Since that merger, the Department has functioned both as the conservatory of music and a locus of research in the performing arts. Today, 1,500 students—baccalaureate through doctoral—major in: classical, jazz and music theater performance; music composition (jazz, film scoring, multimedia, and traditional), music technology, and music business; music education, dance education, and educational theater education;  performing arts administration; and music therapy and drama therapy guided by more than 400 faculty. Faculty and students share a spirit of openness and innovation encouraging the pursuit of high artistic goals. Department interests cross school lines and bring performers and composers together with choreographers, directors, actors, librettists, and filmmakers in innovative, collaborative projects, often reviewed by the New York media. Music business students study with world-renowned faculty through private lessons and participate in ensembles, master classes, and live performances. Distinguished Department alumni include: Jazz great Wayne Shorter, Tony Award winners Cy Coleman and Betty Comden, composer and conductor Tania Leon, music technologist Enoch Light, and Academy Award, Pulitzer Prize, and Tony Award winner John Patrick Shanley.

    Founded in 1976, the NYU Steinhardt Music Business program prepares both graduate and undergraduate students to be leaders in the dynamic, global music marketplace. Academically rigorous and cross-disciplinary by definition, the Music Business course of study combines the boundless artistic resources of New York City with the cutting-edge inquiry and innovation of a major research university. The undergraduate curriculum includes a foundation in music theory and history, as well as business courses taught in collaboration with NYU’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business. In addition to providing structured courses, the curriculum promotes individual choices and development through an interactive classroom atmosphere, internships, participation in our record company, Village Records, and completion of research requirements.
