The mission of The Music Settlement is to create a community where artistic expression belongs to everyone by serving those who seek personal growth through the arts.
The Music Settlement was founded in 1912 by Almeda Adams with the support of The Fortnightly Musical Club and several of Cleveland's leading families. With growing interest in the Settlement movement, Miss Adams started the school to provide high quality music education to students of all ages regardless of their ability to pay. Over ninety years later, the founders would be pleased to know that The Settlement is now one of the largest community music schools in the country. The original mission was expanded to offer a variety of arts related programs to a diverse student population. Programs beyond music instruction include a nationally acclaimed Music Therapy program and one of the most popular Early Childhood Education programs in Cleveland. The Settlement offers services at our University Circle campus, satellites and contracted agencies throughout Northeast Ohio. Altogether, the Settlement brings music and the arts into the lives of nearly 3,000 people on a weekly basis throughout the Greater Cleveland area.
