Hello my friends and fellow humans! 

It is such an honor to share with you the news this August. September will mark six months since buying The Music Factory building. It has been a complete joy working on repairs and upgrades, always exploring new ways to best serve the community. Having such a positive and beautiful dream unfold has inspired round-the-clock work exploring possibilities. One area of focus has been developing a record label under the same umbrella: Music Factory Records.

Since February, we have received dozens of positive reviews! Read a few at or via the blog page. So much has transpired! It means the world to me when you all show support by listening to the music, visiting the website, and even buying merch to share the LOVE as I continue to pour my heart and soul into this work!


The best way to get involved is to sign up for music lessons via The Music Factory. You can improve your life while signing up yourself, your kids, or your loved ones for instruction on all sorts of instruments. This fall, we will offer special deals during day-times and weekends.There are 3 ways to sign up; at our location, online via zoom, and in some neighborhoods we are offering weekly in- home visits! 




The next BEST way to support our efforts is to visit the online store New items becoming available each week: this link will continue working while our new online store is under construction. GO buy MERCH! I will be sharing proceeds with a few select charities, I will share the details in newsletters this Fall.
