Our Dedicated
Staff & Faculty

At the heart of our programming is our highly credentialed and dedicated staff and faculty. They create a nurturing space for all students while refusing to compromise on quality because everyone deserves access to excellent music education.

"Settlement’s faculty is first-rate. Not only are they competent musicians but, more importantly, they care about the development of each of their students as a whole. We have also been blessed by the many players behind the scenes at Settlement—the Branch Directors and Coordinators, the various staff, the receptionists who have and continue to serve us. They are some of the kindest, brightest, hardworking people I have had the privilege of knowing. Many opportunities for music education beyond individual lessons that have opened up for my children through Settlement are the fruits of their hard work." -Philip Dharmawirya
