About

Mission Statement

The Music Connection (TMC) works with students from the Berkeley and Oakland Unified School Districts to provide free, supplemental music tutoring for young musicians through after-school and in-class tutoring in both individual and group settings. By doing so, TMC will provide young students with a strong foundation in music, which will help them develop teamwork and self-confidence.

Our Programs

We provide music lessons to students in the Berkeley community in a variety of forms. Our tutors are UC Berkeley students from a variety of academic backgrounds, but all with extensive musical experience.

Private Instrument Tutoring

We have expanded our private piano and vocal program to include other instruments! The instruments we offer will depend on tutor availability. Please submit an application for your student, and we will try our best to accommodate!

For questions, contact us at tmcberkeley@gmail.com.


In-Class Tutoring

In-class tutors visit BUSD elementary/middle school music classes once a week during school and help out the music instructor as a TA.

Have any questions? Contact our in-class director at tmcberkeley@gmail.com


Private Piano/Vocal Tutoring

Private tutors are assigned student(s) for piano or vocal tutoring. This tutoring option is great for prospective piano or vocal tutors who would like to work in a one-on-one setting. This picture is from our Fall 2017 private piano and vocal recital, during which our cute tutees performed lovely pieces!
