Founded by Almeda Adams in 1912 as part of the Settlement movement to welcome new immigrants to Cleveland through the common language of music, The Music Settlement provides early childhood education, music instruction, and music therapy to people of all ages and levels of experience in Northeast Ohio. Our venues include a campus at University Circle, Ohio City's BOP STOP at The Music Settlement live-music and education venue, and a new campus being constructed on Detroit Ave. between W. 25th and W. 28th in Ohio City.

Our mission is to create a community where artistic expression belongs to everyone by serving those who seek personal growth through the arts.

BOP STOP at The Music Settlement is Cleveland's premier live-music and education venue with sweeping views of Lake Erie. Donated to The Music Settlement in 2013, BOP STOP is the place to see high-quality, up-and-coming and well-established acts on the near-West side. The Music Settlement also holds classes for music instruction, music therapy and arts for the young at the BOP STOP.
