The Nest’s theme color with the word About


The Nest Music Conservatory is a non-profit organization providing engaging music education to youths in the Bronx through out-of-school programs, live events, and academic empowerment.

We are dedicated to creating a nurturing environment that contributes to students’ social and emotional growth, their families, and our communities through classes, events, and concert series.

The conservatory’s curriculum was developed by a team of academic scholars who strives to foster empowerment, enhance students’ focus and memory, and help develop life skills through the love and practice of music.

Students learning through PLAY - a concept designed to remove the stigma of failure and allow kids the opportunity to explore through the trail.
We encourage, support, and teach confidence, patience, ingenuity, determination, and critical thinking through fun and exciting music education.



Our instructors carry more than just a Ph.D. or Master’s in music - they possess a passion that is carried on through their lessons and imprinted on the music of their students.

We keep students involved in the learning process and develop an appreciation for the sounds they create.
