In a barn studio 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 focus on learning to understand music through rhythm based activities and instruments -- drums and percussion mostly, but we offer guitar, bass and piano upon request. We will again hold our exciting summer drum and percussion camps next summer (2019)

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, online or through directly ordering from us.

If you can't come to us, we'll come to you, through programs and 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.
