Why Choose The Music Settlement?

When you select The Music Settlement, you are selecting high quality at an exceptional value. Our musicians come dressed and prepared to impress. Your purchase supports local artists in your community, as well as our historic non-profit community music school.

Our musicians are prepared to perform various genres of music to suit your event and can provide you with a list of songs. Requests for specific songs are at the discretion of each musician, though most are willing to accommodate if given enough time to prepare the piece.

We offer a personalized service to meet the individual needs of your event.  We are experienced in providing traditional, as well as unique offerings – including playing for a wedding ceremony at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport’s baggage claim. If you can dream it, we can do it!

"The Music Settlement was wonderful to work with. They are very professional and talented. The performers arrive on time and do a wonderful job engaging with the audience. Their music choices are always well thought out and something everyone can enjoy. The Orange Senior Center was very thankful for the opportunity to work with The Music Settlement to provide music to everyone at any age. We look forward to having them again in the future."

The Music Settlement's performance was fantastic!  Our guests loved listening to their music while sipping cocktails and connected with old colleagues and friends.  The musicians arrived on time, were professional, and played a diverse and appropriate mix of music for our event.  Highly recommend.

"We had our Lake Health Beachwood Medical Center VIP Open House at the beginning of 2019 and The Music Settlement provided us with two performers, who were amazing. Having them there made the event feel more elegant. Definitely, would recommend them to anyone having an event that needs live music."

"My wife and I hired Stephan Haluska for our wedding in August 2019 – he was amazing! Not only was he personable, responsive and accommodating, he played almost any song you could think of. We met with Stephan several times leading up to the wedding to discuss our preferences and he even attended the rehearsal to ensure everything would go smoothly. Our wedding was on a rooftop and the harp music was the perfect touch to our ceremony. We had more than several guests compliment Stephan’s music and we recommend hiring him and other musicians from The Music Settlement – a truly exceptional experience."

"We had a live guitar player from The Music Settlement accompany our center holiday bash! He was very pleasant and social, which is very important for our population. The ease of reaching out to The Music Settlement to coordinate the services from their talented team made my job easier. They were able to accommodate my request with very little time. It was a pleasant addition to our holiday experience and partnership relationship building. I would like to offer a big thank you from Oak Street Health-Glenville location to The Music Settlement!"
