In a barn here in the magical town of Brandon, Vermont, we offer music making experiences to people who may or may have never played music, in an inviting, encouraging and friendly environment.

As a community music studio, we host a variety of events. We also provide outreach programs throughout New England.

As a school, we give lessons and classes.

While we specialize in drums and percussion, lessons on guitar, bass and piano are available upon request. This summer (2018) we are once again offering summer drum and percussion camps.

We also continue to offer a variety of  instruments and accessories that support our mission of making music accessible to people of all ages. Some products are available right here (by appointment) and also online or through ordering from us.

Come and play our “sound tree”, IMG_1144jam with old or new friends, participate in a rhythm circle, experience our Sound Journeys classes where exploration is unlimited, or bring your kids to our weekly Sally’s Music Circle classes*. You never know what may happen, but it’s always exciting.  Come & Play!

If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you, through numerous services and products available right here at our Hands-On Music website. In the spirit of our real-life approach, we break through the limitations of online interaction by offering valuable and helpful email, phone and Skype advice, lessons and informative sessions. Everyone can make music, and we’re eager to help you access the music within yourself by supporting, encouraging and nourishing your path into music.
