Who We Are

Music Enthusiasts

The Etude Club of Berkeley (ECB) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting musical development among both adults and students in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Each month members perform a musical program for other members, their guests and the public, as well as an annual Young Artist Competition for students 13 - 18 to develop musically. Winners perform for the Club and receive a cash scholarship prize.

The tea time following each monthly program is essential to our goals, as it allows the music to be discussed, performers to receive feedback, and new ensembles to be formed.


Join ECB Today!

Our members come from diverse backgrounds: some are musicians, while others are not. What we share is our love of music and our wish to support it in our community. The monthly meetings give us the opportunity to hear great performances by our members, to make new friends and to reconnect with old ones. ECB has two categories of membership:

  • Performing

    – participate in and contribute to all activities, including performing
  • General

    – participate in and contribute to all activities, other than performing
