Lessons & Classes



Education for everyone, regardless of age or ability

At Third Street Music School Settlement, we believe in nurturing students' desires to learn in any way we can. Our preschool program focuses on hands-on exposure with the arts, while material for older students transitions toward more fluid and conceptual targets. Either way, our established curriculum ensures that students become more comfortable with their subjects so they're prepared for a lifetime of developing their skills.

  • Third Street Preschool - It’s common knowledge that students are most receptive to new concepts and ideas the younger they are. We have music and movement classes, half day and full day preschool, and a toddler program to begin your child’s lifelong journey with music and dance.
  • Programs for ages 3 and up - Here at Third Street Music School we believe in serving our community, and that means lessons that cover an array of proficiency levels in over 25 instruments including voice for all ages.
  • Music lessons - Whether you’re interested in individual instruction, ensembles, composing, practicing or performing, we have a wide variety of styles and genres to expand your musical horizon.
  • Dance classes - Musical expression isn’t just limited to making music with instruments and Third Street Music School offers an assortment of classes for all ages to learn about the beauty of dance.

Experiencing music and dance is the heart of our techniques

At the Third Street Music School Settlement, students, teachers and visitors are always surrounded with the sights and sounds of music and dance being learned and shared. A short stroll through our hallways reveals an abundant mixture of ballet, jazz, chamber music and children’s sing-alongs. Because we don’t just teach music and dance, we live it.
