Michael Lapinsky

Upper School Music Teacher

Michael started at Bank Street as the Music Director for Summer Camp in 2011 and began working in the School For Children in 2013, assisting with chorus classes and the 13/14s musical, as well as covering parental and sabbatical leaves for our music teachers. He has also worked with numerous organizations and theater companies around NYC as a freelance music director, vocal coach, and performer, including BMCC and TheaterWorksUSA.
