Fall 2018


Welcome to M.U.S.E. (Musical Understanding thru Sound Education)

M.U.S.E. (Musical Understanding through Sound Education) was established in 1986 by the current director of operations Bryant Allard. M.U.S.E. is in over 45 schools both in Portland and the San Francisco bay area offering quality music instruction in band and in some schools piano. There is no cost to the participating schools; payments are made directly to M.U.S.E. by the parents. The cost of these lessons are half what it costs to take privately and students have the added attraction of playing in a group setting (your school band) as well as participating in other events sponsored by M.U.S.E.

We are currently enrolling students for the fall of 2018.  Please use the links below to help you get information about our program. Some of the links are for this currently school year but will be relevant for 2018-2019. The cost of classes will remain the same-there are no increases for 2018-2019.
