My 8 year old daughter has been attending MSM for nearly 3 years. Taking piano lessons. I sat in on her lessons until she was too "big girl" for that, and I really liked the way the instructor interacted. She has really progressed quite well in her ability and impresses everyone she plays for. Overall, the school is very professionally run and Eric does an outstanding job selecting qualified instructors that work well with children. Five stars for sure, and my daughter agrees!read more

My 8 yr old son has been doing guitar for 6 months and just had his first recital. The program is structured very well. Setup in a way to motivate kids and teens. I was very impressed at the recital with all the kids and the skill level. Great teachers. I would recommend to anyone with children interested in music at all levels.read more

We could not be happier with Minnesota School of Music. Our son has been taking guitar lessons there for almost three years. Mr. Norell has been a fantastic instructor. He has worked with our son to adapt to what our son wants to learn, while also making sure he establishes a solid foundation of theory. Our daughter started taking voice lessons in August. Miss Hoops has been wonderful, so far. I would highly recommend lessons from Minnesota School of Music.read more

Our family highly recommends Minnesota School of Music. Extremely welcoming and friendly atmosphere. My daughter loves her teacher! She always comes out of her lesson with a smile and is eager to tell/show us what she’s working on next. We’ve been here two years and wouldn’t think of going any place else.read more

I have three children each learning a different instrument. My son 12 learning to play piano, my 9 year old daughter is on guitar, and my 6 year old daughter is on the Ukulele. It is great that they each have the one on one instructions, as they each learn and develop differently. It is a joy over the past year to see them play 3 separate concerts, each time gaining confidence and skill. Definitely recommend this to families in the twin cities. One other nice feature if you miss a class you get to make it up with the owner Eric, the kids love all the teachers they are a really care.read more

My 6 year old daughter started singing lessons here and enjoyed every one! The teachers are all friendly and talented, and helped her to not only work on her singing but taught her notes and counting in a fun manner. The free and voluntary concerts they do are great ways for the kids to experience being on stage, with all eyes focused on them - in a very professional manner! I highly recommend MN School of Music!read more

My son has had an amazing experience at the MN School of Music. He started playing piano in March 2019 and has had an absolute blast. His teacher, Mrs. Morris, was a perfect fit for him. She engaged him from the beginning and has tailored his lessons to his interest/energy. Eric has been wonderful as well. He is very welcoming and keeps the school running with the utmost integrity and professionalism. I highly recommend the MN School of Music!read more

When my daughter mentioned wanting to play the guitar, I had no idea where to start looking for a teacher or lessons. When I Googled local music lessons, I was surprised to see Minnesota School of Music was so close to our house! Eric Nehring was so helpful in explaining how lessons worked and getting us scheduled. And her current teacher Zach Barrett is so encouraging! I think she’s more confident in life because of her connection with the school. We’ve been at it for 6 months and she’s excited to perform in her first recital next month. Highly recommend!read more

He gets super excited for his lessons and is picking up Piano fast!read more

My son was engaged and encouraged from the time he walked in the door. Being able to change lesson times and keep the same instructor with some work is also really nice - and even if you have to change instructors to get the slot you need so that all the other activities can happen they all work from the same curriculum so they can keep right on going. The recital was very nice and although we are not doing the one in October, we will be back for February. The convenience of having flexible timing and days cannot be overstated. This feels like Foss of piano lessons, and I mean that as a compliment. I do wish they would give multi-day discounts like some other activities (swimming, gymnastics) where if you signed up for multiple days (probably instruments/voice in this case) you might get 10% off or something. Sibling discounts would be excellent too.read more

We came for a guitar lesson to see how our son would like it and have been hooked, coming ever since. This place is seriously a gem. The leadership and instructors are passionate about what they do. They love teaching and are very patient. Our child is growing musically but also in other ways that we did not expect. His confidence has shot up, even playing his guitar for his whole class at his school. The facilities are also always immaculate. You can tell everyone takes pride and care in the place. The expansion is lovely and my youngest even likes playing here while she waits for her brother’s lesson to finish. I cannot recommend this music school enough. Praise to everyone involved in making a difference in children’s lives.read more
