Arts Reach Youth (ARY) at Brooklyn Music School

Brooklyn's best After School Program, Arts Reaching Youth (ARY), offers a range of creative options with classes in music, dance, theater, and the performing arts, along with homework support and healthy snacks.

BMS offers free after school pick up from selected schools, and our location in Brooklyn's cultural district makes us convenient for families with kids in grades K-5 from around Brooklyn. Appropriate for children ages 5 to 12 years old. 

When students participate in ARY they have the opportunity to join in group music classes, dance classes, join ensembles such as Rock Band or the Orchestra, or even develop their Musical Theater skills.
