About Us

Our Mission

To bring the wonderful world of music to children and adults and to create a lifelong love of music while helping them grow intellectually and physically and at the same time building self-confidence and self-esteem.

A Brief History

The Music Connection was started back in 1995 by Darren Muise. We originally opened our doors in N. Beverly offering our music lessons to the residents of Beverly, Danvers, Salem, Hamilton, Wenham, Manchester, Essex, Ipswich, Peabody, Gloucester and towns throughout the North Shore. Offering Piano Lessons, Guitar Lessons, Drum Lessons, Voice Lessons, Saxophone Lessons, Clarinet Lessons and more!

In 1999 Darren became certified in Kindermusik® and he opened up a studio in the same location in N. Beverly. In talking with parents, Darren found that most families were running to 3 or 4 different places with their children for activities like music, dance, gymnastics, karate and more! With that concept, Darren opened Kidsworks® in Essex in 2003. Kidsworks® offered all those programs under one roof making it very convenient for families saving time and money.

In 2007 they moved the business to Danvers, briefly on Endicott St. then finally settling on High St. in Danvers where they currently reside. They turned their focus on bringing the joy and benefits of music instruction to their students. Having serviced over 5000 students since 1995, The Music Connection remains the North Shore’s Finest Choice For Music Instruction.
