BMS Announces New Advisory Board

Brooklyn Music School (BMS), located at 126 Felix Street, Brooklyn, NY, announces a new Advisory Board, created to play a key role in helping BMS continually enrich its educational and artistic offerings, improve its pedagogical approach, increase visibility in the community, and refine strategies for growth.

The new Advisory Board members are Hanna Arie-Gaifman, Martin Bresnick, Christopher Cerrone, Nels Cline, David del Tredici, Bridie Gauthier, Anthony Laciura, Dr. Victor Lewis, Lester Lynch, Elizabeth (Betsy) Hun Schmidt, Dalit Warshaw, and Dan Zanes. These highly skilled, illustrious, and lauded artists, educators, and leaders will provide support to the board and staff of BMS, and help to shape the future of the non-profit organization, which has grown by more than 30% each year for the past five years.

“We are honored to have such an illustrious group of artists and educators contribute to Brooklyn Music School’s mission of making high quality music and performing arts education accessible to all in our community,” said Crocker Coulson, Chair of the BMS Board of Trustees. “In order to remain relevant we need to continually raise the bar of the quality and breadth of the offerings we provide and find new ways to bring the excitement of artistic discovery to the next generation. These Advisory Board members have generously agreed to contribute their time and wise counsel to moving BMS forward.”

Members of the Advisory Board have all committed to contribute their time in meaningful ways, and over the next year BMS will be announcing a series of concerts, workshops, master classes, and lectures that will enable children and adults to interact and learn from musicians, dancers, performers, and arts educators at the top of their professions. Other members will contribute by providing strategic advice to the BMS Board or helping with the professional development of BMS faculty and staff. Additional members of the Advisory Board are expected to be announced in the coming months.
