Hello Friends -


Welcome to the Music page at Academy of the City Charter School. My name is Alan Núñez, and I'm privileged to be your child's Music and Chorus teacher. The class would not happen without the presence of Ms. Jensen, who has joined us this year!

It is my fondest wish that these classes open up the world of music that surrounds us. Whether it's in your car or your neighborhood, Queens or in all of New York City, your child is exposed to an incredibly diverse cultural landscape.

Children are natural music-makers. It's our goal to see to it that this impulse not only never goes away, but also gets enhanced. I look forward to meeting you at the Winter or Spring Concerts or at any of the Friday assemblies that we hold at 8:30am. Please don't hesitate to contact me at anunez@academyofthecity.org if you have any questions, comments or want to share some thoughts about your child.

With love,

Mr. Alan & Ms. Jensen


Special Programs and Field Trips

At Academy of the City, we're dedicated to bring our students as much of the cultural aspects of New York City as we can. In that vein, we've partnered up with Carnegie Hall for four years in a row with two of their exceptional programs - Musical Explorers for grades 1 and 2 and Link Up for grades 3, 4, and 5.

In Musical Explorers, the students are exposed to three genres of music per semester, culminating in a field trip to Carnegie Hall to attend a live performance of the performers studied. In the past, we've sung and danced to Argentinian folk, American jug band and Haitian song. To check out this year's selection for the spring, click on either 1st Grade Music & Chorus or 2nd Grade Music & Chorus and scroll down to Musical Explorers.

In the Link Up program, our older students are brought into the exciting world of symphonic music and orchestras! The curriculum is based on vocal and recorder selections and culminates in an end-of-year field trip to Carnegie Hall to sing and play along with the orchestra. We're excited to announce that this year, Carnegie Hall is rolling out a new curriculum called The Orchestra Sings! To check out more about this program, click here: Link Up: The Orchestra Sings!
