THE MUSIC VILLAGE
A Vibrant Learning Environment
The Music Village is a community musical arts center and school, celebrating music and cultural expressions rooted in the traditions of diverse local and global communities in the heart of downtown South Bend, Indiana.
The Music Village is a place that provides intimate opportunities for hands-on learning in a relaxed and informal setting, both in its classrooms and in its performance halls. It is a place where residents and visitors can discover their own creativity and unite to share the diverse cultural heritage of the greater South Bend area via the musical arts. Together, we create a thriving, vibrant community of thoughtful individuals with a unifying, positive connection to music.
The location of The Music Village expresses our commitment to restoring downtown vitality and vibrancy with its stabilizing presence. We strive to demonstrate this by teaching and presenting music that reflects the rich and varied cultural traditions of the South Bend area’s diverse communities.
Resources and activities focus on improving and expanding musical arts opportunities for people of all ages, interests, abilities, and backgrounds. At The Music Village, we provide the tools for people to make their own music and use dance to engage with the same. This is a place where young and old, beginners and advanced players, and people from various cultures and traditions come together to create music, experience dance and learn from each other.
