Five Town College was established in 1974 in Merrick Long Island by Stanley G. Cohen. It was originally planned as a business college offering educational instruction in the business realm. The college remained at the smaller much simpler Merrick campus until 1982 when the growing student population left classrooms busting at their seams. The college then moved to Seaford New York. It was here that the college offered the first Master of Music Degree. They even built a recording studio and expanded the courses offered in the music program. Five Towns College is located on 35 acres of very peaceful, wooded countryside of Long Island's North Shore. As the college continued to grow, so did the facilities. They offer state of the art computer labs, music rooms, and a huge musical library. The music library is like no other. You can find just about anything that you need on the subject of Jazz and American Music. It is a haven for music lovers across the globe. Things quickly changed with the offering of a music program. Music began to take over and what started as a music business program expanded into a nationally recognized program. The college is the first one in New York State to establish and offer programs in business music and jazz/commercial music. Their reputation for music programs took off and attracted many well known musicians who became teachers at the college. With the ever popular and growing Music programs, it was soon apparent that the Seaford location was not big enough either. The decision was made for the Five Town College to move once again. In 1992, the College packed their bags and moved to Dix Hills, New York. In this current site, the college continued to expand adding resident halls and state of the art recording studios and sound stages for film and television. Since its inception as a higher learning facility, Five Towns College has strived to offer excellent programs and degrees for its students. They have a national reputation for their music and performing arts programs. They also are one of the few institutions across the U.S. to offer a Doctor of Musical Arts degree. The college also is the home to the Dix Hills Center for the Performing Arts. Here, they offer students the opportunity to showcase their talents and allow the community to enjoy a large variety of shows and concerts. There is also The John Lennon Center for Music & Technology. It is here that you will find excellent muti-media studios with only the most sophisticated state of the art equipment.
