From Our Website

The Music Center is a unique blending of performance and educational opportunities into one musical family. At The Music Center you can participate in choirs, take lessons and classes, and attend symphony concerts through one organization. Founded in 2000, this was the ultimate artistic collaboration, ensuring the sustainability of the arts in Calhoun County for generations to come. The activities of the various programs include: local concert series encompassing both orchestral and choral performance; outreach programs for schools in the Battle Creek and surrounding communities; individual instrumental and vocal instruction; group lessons in music and dance; choral training; performance tours; and several special events and fundraisers throughout the year.


The Community Music School offers a variety of music education, from private lessons and group classes to choirs and ensembles. Learn to play the guitar like you've always dreamt about, take pleasure in singing, enjoy learning piano, embrace the violin. Come explore a lifetime of musical opportunities in band and orchestra instruments, guitar, piano, drums, or voice. Foster joy and confidence in our Music First and Music Second classes for ages 0-5. Children experience a wide variety of tonalities and meter through movement, singing, and playing of simple percussion instruments in a relaxed environment.
