No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.
Pete Francis Heimbold is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He is most widely-known as one of the three founding members of the band Dispatch. From the late nineties through today, Pete and Dispatch have forged independent music history as an act that grew solely on word of mouth without any major label assistance, yet have been able to have multiple sold-out runs at Madison Square Garden, Boston's TD Garden, Red Rocks, and arenas throughout the world. If you go on one of those Duck Tours in Boston, tour guides will point out the location of the largest independent music event in history, which occurred at Boston's Hatch Shell in 2004 when Pete and Dispatch expected around 30K people to show up. They and the entire city of Boston were pleasantly surprised when 110K people showed up instead. Outside of Dispatch, Pete is a prolific songwriter who continually experiments with new sounds and styles.
