About Us

Mission Statement

The Music Connection (TMC), in collaboration with the Berkeley Unified School District, aims to provide free, supplemental music tutoring for young musicians through after-school and in-class tutoring in both individual and group settings. By doing so, TMC will provide young students with a strong foundation in music, which will help them develop teamwork and self-confidence.

Our Programs

We provide music lessons to students in the Berkeley community in a variety of forms. Our tutors are UC Berkeley students from a variety of academic backgrounds, but all with extensive musical experience.

In-Class Tutoring

In-class tutors visit BUSD elementary/middle school music classes once a week during school and help out the music instructor as a TA.

Afterschool Tutoring

After-school students lead and teach a small group of music students once a week during afterschool sessions at BUSD elementary and middle schools.

Private Piano/Vocal Tutoring

Private tutors are assigned student(s) for piano or vocal tutoring. This tutoring option is great for prospective piano or vocal tutors who would like to work in a one-on-one setting. This picture is from our Fall 2017 private piano and vocal recital, during which our cute tutees performed lovely pieces!
