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.
On singer-songwriter Arlissa’s breakthrough track “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie,” she coos about the reality of truth always peeking through in life and love. It’s a mantra that the 25-year-old German-born, south London-bred siren has maintained throughout the entirety of her journey in music. As Arlissa enters the next phase of her career—armed with a dancey reboot of her viral hit thanks to Jonas Blue—she continues to promote honest music on her own terms.
She piqued on the UK Pop radar, making the BBC’s Sound Of 2013 poll alongside acts like Laura Mvula, Haim, AlunaGeorge, Savages, The Weeknd, and CHVRCHES with no formal album or single release. Arlissa then continued on a DIY mission, releasing music via the internet and rebuilding her buzz. She took to the Internet to release original songs, along with a YouTube cover as a litmus test. She dropped the acoustic version of “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie,” which yielded over a million views in less than one week. It wasn’t long before a true fan following was formed.
One admirer in particular was UK house DJ Jonas Blue, who elevated “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie” with his own spin after hearing it online. While Arlissa will continue dropping loosie tracks in anticipation of her debut album, she upholds her vow to make her music by her rules and having fun along the way.
