We could not be more disheartened and shocked at yesterday’s news reports alleging misconduct by the founder of the Long Island City Academy of Music. We extend our condolences to those students and families potentially impacted.

As a proud member of music and education in Long Island City and the wider Queens and NYC community, a safe learning environment is priority No. 1 for Sage Music; this is why we conduct extensive background checks of all our educators.

Our doors are always open to any and all students who wish to pursue their love of music.
