Founded in 1897, Brooklyn Conservatory of Music (BKCM) transforms lives and builds community through the expressive, educational, and therapeutic powers of music. BKCM is committed to providing a nurturing environment that promotes and personifies excellence, collaboration, and community for individuals engaged in performing and music study. In 2016, Spaceworks partnered with BKCM to bring 14 of its rehearsal spaces online for rent by the Spaceworks community.
BKCM offers private and group instruction in every major instrument as well as an early childhood music program for parents and children and a Suzuki program. The Music Partners and Music Therapy divisions bring music education programs and music therapy to schools, youth, senior and adult-support service centers, foster care agencies, and other community-based organizations. Throughout the year, the Conservatory presents concerts and community-wide events, including performances by its Community Orchestra and Chorale.
