The concept of Music Annex NYC is simple: we make many of the world's greatest musicians accessible to you for classes and events that inform and inspire. And we do it at an affordable price.

Some of the world's greatest musicians live in the New York area or perform here regularly. This includes players in jazz, rock, metal, R&B, and more. Many of these players love to teach and interact in a classroom setting! Music Annex NYC is well-connected to these musicians and we work with them to create expteriences you will love.

Many of our master classes are held at Mozart Studio in Little Falls, NJ.

In addition to drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocal classes, Music Annex NYC will be scheduling music and sound production/engineering classes wih world-class people. Join our social media for announcements about programming.

Music Annex NYC is owned by Orkin Marketing Consultants. OMC manages business and marketing for several top artists, and also owns and operates Music Annex LA and the annual Drum Fantasy Camp in Chicago.
