The Music Settlement (TMS) is a centuries-old community music school forged out of the Settlement Movement as a way to welcome immigrants to Cleveland and unite them through the common language of music. Since our founding in 1912, we have grown from our foundation of music instruction to also offering early childhood education, music therapy services, and a live music venue. In 2018, we expanded our mission with the construction of a second campus in the near west side Ohio City neighborhood. We are literally and figuratively bridging our past to our future while connecting Cleveland’s east and west sides.
