The Filomen M. D’Agostino Greenberg Music SchooL

Fostering education, access, and inclusion for people of all ages with vision loss


The Filomen M. D’Agostino Greenberg Music School (FMDG Music School), founded in 1913, is committed to helping people pursue their study of music while addressing the challenges posed by vision loss. The Music School has garnered high regard for its instruction, performances, and teacher training. We also serve as a resource to music educators and performers nationwide as one of the leading providers of large print and braille music.

Arts education fosters inclusion, diversity and creativity. Vision loss knows no boundaries. At The Filomen M. D’Agostino Greenberg Music School, we demonstrate these tenets each and every day with each and every student.
