Our Mission:

Our mission is to enrich lives and build community by providing inspiring music education and by offering performance and listening opportunities throughout the area.

What we do:

Mountain Top Music Center is a community music school located in Conway, New Hampshire. Our mission is to enrich lives and build community by providing inspiring music education and by offering performance and listening opportunities throughout the area. We use music to build community through group study and performance, shared listening, and mutually respectful, inter-generational, multi-cultural musical communication. More than 350 people participate in our lessons, classes, workshops, and community ensembles each year. We offer progressive, coordinated music education to students of all ages. For children we provide developmentally appropriate instruction aimed at nurturing the means for music expression. We offer adults a way to begin or extend their musical skills and expertise.

Mountain Top Music Center presents a variety of concerts bringing the work of our students, community ensembles, and faculty to the community. We also present professional musicians and ensembles, often in collaboration with other non-profit organizations. In recent years attendance at MTMC concerts has increased noticeably. We understand that many concert audiences are composed of individuals who were once or still are music students. We link our community of students with our community of listeners, seeking to expand both.

The green “CONCERT SCHEDULE AND RESERVATIONS” button on this page will take you to a schedule of concerts. There is no need to sign in to view the schedule, but when you click “Add to Cart” to reserve seats, you will be asked to sign in with a user ID and password. If you have bought a concert ticket in the last several years, that info was emailed to you on or around April 26, 2018. If you have misplaced your info, click on “Forgot” and enter the primary email for your household (the one that receives concert directions and/or invoices from Mt Top). That address will then receive an email with your credentials (you may have to check your spam).  You can also call our office between 10 and 5  Monday through Thursday and we will give you your information. If you are a new user (never registered for a lesson, purchased a concert ticket, or recently donated to Mountain Top), you must create an account in order to purchase a concert ticket. You will receive email confirmation of your payment.
