The Aaron Copland School of Music (ACSM) is one of the most prestigious and active music schools in any public university system in the country. An academic department of Queens College and an cultural entity of Kupferberg Center for the Arts, ACSM offers three types of undergraduate degrees; general music (BA), Performance (B.Mus), and Music Education (BA/Ed). All our undergraduate students go through rigorous academic courses in theory, history, ear-training, sight-singing and performance. All students in all undergraduate programs take private lessons as part of their degree requirements.

ACSM faculty members include world-famous musicians and our newly renovated music building provides students with a welcoming atrium, Steinway pianos in all practice rooms, a music library which has more than 35,000 scores, 30,000 books and 20,000 recordings, and an award-winning LeFrak Concert Hall, celebrated for its acoustics and the Maynard-Walker Memorial organ. ACSM produces over 300 concerts a year including recitals, orchestra, choir, ensembles, new music, early music concerts, and opera productions.
