The Uptown Music Collective, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit school of music.

Our Mission is to provide exceptional music education and high-impact musical experiences that instill a love of music and an understanding of the importance of discipline, hard work and community.

For over 20 years, the Uptown Music Collective has been providing exceptional modern music education grounded in traditional educational principles. Our programs engage students through an emphasis on modern genres including rock, pop, soul, blues, country, R&B, and funk, but our learners appreciate all music, gleaning from their studies the importance of proper technique, discipline, respect, tradition, teamwork, responsibility, communication, community, and leadership.

 As they embrace ownership of their craft, our students are positioned to lead and support their younger and/or less experienced peers. This cycle of learning, combined with our professional staff and teachers, has grown into a family of musicians who are all committed to our highest ideas – community, leadership, integrity, and music.
