Math and science educate the mind. 
Art and music educate the heart. 


The Florentine School, with two locations in Chatham Square and Chinatown, offers a breadth of programs for children and adults. Whether you are taking courses in music, art, or academics, Florentine’s focus is on high-quality instruction using proven curricula by inspiring faculty. Once you walk through their doors you sense that Florentine is a place of “teaching and learning with joy and purpose.”

As founder Elma Moy explains, "My commitment to Florentine is personal: its development parallels my own search for answers to the challenges of raising and educating our children in New York. I share the same concerns and aspirations of other Florentine parents. We want to give a little extra and work a little harder for our children so that they will become happy, successful educated adults.” 

Music education has been a major focus of Florentine from the very beginning. The Florentine Music School faculty comprises over 25 professional musicians holding degrees from top international conservatories and universities, including the Manhattan School of Music, Mannes, Juilliard, Indiana and Berklee Conservatory.
