CUNY Commons Music Community Portal

The CUNY Commons Music Community Portal is a website that aggregates information that had previously only been available from a disparate variety of sources. The Community Portal hosts the Music calendar of events, and serves as virtual department announcement board, with news posts featuring the achievements of students, faculty, and alumni. The Community Portal also hosts published lists of current students, current faculty, and alumni. The Music Community Portal was created in Fall 2012 and to date has received over 64,000 page views.



Music Students Resources Group

The Music Students Resources Group is a private area of the Commons where Music students and faculty can share resources such as syllabi, exam prep material, and professional development resources. Members of the group must be GC Music faculty or students. The group currently has 38 members and is growing each year.



Practice Room Booking Website

The Practice Room Booking Website is only available to GC students and faculty, and it is the calendar and management system for booking practice rooms and classrooms for the music department. For assistance with any further questions regarding booking a GC practice room, please email



Graduate Students in Music Conference Website

The Graduate Students in Music Conference (GSIM) has been hosted and run by GC Graduate Students for over 10 years. For the 2015 conference, the GSIM Website  was created to host all the conference information, including the program, schedule, and registration. The website will continue to serve as the home base for all conference related information, and will be updated on a regular basis as the committee, call for papers, and schedules change from form year to year. The website also features an archive where past programs and call for papers can be viewed. Future plans for this website include a GSIM Blog.



Music Program Promo Video

The Graduate Center Videography Fellows created a Music Program Promo Video featuring various professors and students from the program. This video gives a great glimpse at life in the GC Music Department!



Student Websites

One of the training topics from the Program Social Media Fellows that have been offered to Music students is how to build your own online CV / personal website. Future plans for student websites include more training, and an initiative to help interested faculty members set up their own websites as well. For an example of a student website created through the Commons see: Naomi Barrettara.



The Graduate Center Music Program has an active Facebook account, where news, events, and interesting articles and scholarship are shared to a diverse community. We have piloted several different Facebook campaigns over the years, including #WorldMusicWednesday campaigns, Composer Birthdays, and weekly posts of new works by GC Composition students. As of Fall 2015, the page had 196 “Likes”, and an average post reach of 1,039 views.




The Graduate Center Music Program has an active Twitter feed, where news, concert announcements, and info about community events are shared. We are connected with many of the professional organizations in our field via twitter, and tweet out calls for papers, conference announcements, and interesting news announcements across the field of music scholarship and performance.  As of Fall 2015, our Twitter feed has over 250 followers.
