NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions was established in 1925. Since that time, Steinhardt Music and Performing Arts Professions has functioned as NYU's "school" of music and developed into a major research and practice center in music technology, music business, music composition, film scoring, music performance practices, performing arts therapies, and the performing arts-in-education (music, dance, and drama). Today, 1,600 students majoring in renowned programs- baccalaureate through Ph.D.- are guided by more than 400 faculty who share The Steinhardt School’s spirit of openness and innovation. Faculty include international performing and recording artists, music business and technology leaders while others sit on leading journal editorial boards and publish some of the most significant music technology and performing arts research on the scene today. This depth and breadth of resources offers unparalleled opportunities for artistic, professional, and scholarly growth. 

We recognize that in addition to substantial training in individual specializations, our graduates require multiple skills. To that end we encourage students to benefit from rich and varied courses throughout The Steinhardt School and the University. In addition, our campus is surrounded by and blends into the world’s capital and epicenter of the performing arts, New York City. Alumni have major performing careers and coveted professional positions in the music industry and in universities throughout the world. Prominent alumni include: jazz great Wayne Shorter, multiple Tony and Grammy Award-winning music theatre composer and songwriter Cy Coleman, multiple Tony and Grammy Award-winning lyricist Betty Comden, multiple Oscar-winning film composer Elmer Bernstein, and Tony Award, Oscar and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and film writer John Patrick Shanley
