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

Private tutors are assigned student(s) for who would like to work in a one-on-one setting. The instruments we offer will depend on tutor availability. Applications are closed for Fall 2023, but check back in January if you’re interested

These pictures are from our Spring 2023 and Fall 2017 end-of-semester recitals, during which our cute tutees performed lovely pieces with their tutors and alone!

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.
