We’re Erin and Stephen Brand!
We want to thank you for visiting our website and learning more about us and what we do.
We do what we do because we are passionate about music. It soothes the soul and brings people together. We believe music is a celebration of life and we are so grateful that we get to celebrate this life with each other and with you every day.
Our Vision and Mission
We believe we can make the world a better place by making it more musical. Our mission is to give people the skills and opportunities they need to live better lives and to help them reach their potential.
Our Formal Education
We both hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in music. Erin has a master’s degree in music education and undergraduate equivalency in music therapy from ECU in addition to undergraduate degrees in flute performance and psychology from UNC Chapel Hill. She is a board certified music therapist since 2012.
Stephen has a master’s degree in vocal performance from ECU and an undergraduate degree in music education from Appalachian State University. He also studied at UNCW and in Chicago.
What We’ve Been Up to Lately
In the midst of raising our two beautiful children, Ronan and Fiona, we enjoy teaching Music Together classes together as often as we can. Helping families bring harmony home is something we’re very passionate about.
While Erin directs the Music Together center, Stephen directs several choral groups in the area including: the Beaufort Community Choral Society, the Carolina Chord Connection (Greenville and Washington’s Barbershop chorus), and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation choir. He also plays professionally with the Sea Pans Steel Pan ensemble in Wilmington.

Changing the world may sound like a lofty goal but we know it can be done, and we know it starts with you. How can we help you incorporate music into your life? We have several opportunities to choose from which you can find here on our website. If you have any questions about what we offer or need more information, please contact us. We would love to connect with you!
