The cutting-edge and the traditional blend beautifully at Brooklyn Music School — founded more than a century ago in 1909. Their home base is right around the corner from The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). This weekend, for example, BMS is featuring the classical keyboard skills of Chris Yip, an NYPD sergeant in his day job.

He will be performing Sunday, in honor of his Ukrainian American teacher Valentina Nazarenko who will be present at the concert. Just last weekend, the Brooklyn Music School hosted a “Sound Bath,” including the usage of meditation bowls to guide students and attendees through an experience “designed for optimal release, grounding, and balance.” Sound Bath Meditation, according to The Brooklyn Music School’s website, is a “sonic” meditation that is achieved through not only listening to music, but feeling it with “our etheric and physical body.”

The intertwining of music, audio and health is surely a cutting-edge area fit for the century-old Brooklyn Music School. For a full listing of Brooklyn Music School events and activities, visit their website.
