- Early Childhood
Award-winning music lessons, ensembles, and group classes for aspiring musicians of all ages and skill levels — children, teens, and adults.

Established in 1966, our pioneering Center for Music Therapy (CMT) uses guided music experiences to help individuals meet life's challenges.
BOP STOP at The Music Settlement is Cleveland's premier listening room: an intimate, acoustically pristine performance venue with sweeping views of Lake Erie.
The Center for Early Childhood is proud of our community roots in Northeast Ohio.
At The Music Settlement, we believe that music is learned in much the same way as language. First, children hear live examples of speech, then they are encouraged to make sounds that approximate words. All of our programs are based on a developmental sequence that acknowledges and encourages the natural responses of children.
Early Childhood programs are perfect for schools, early childhood centers, community centers, libraries, and more.
For information about how our Early Childhood educators can work with the children at your school, organization, or community center in Northeast Ohio, please contact Karen Heitlingter, Chair, Center for Early Childhood.
As a former teacher in Early Childhood at CMSS (Cleveland Music School Settlement), I am grateful for the curriculum CMSS provides and the leadership of Sylvia Easley for so many years.
