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

Absolutely amazing place! Always so welcoming and friendly. We are always greeted as we arrive for lessons by smiling faces. The head of the school Eric and all the teachers we have met are so knowledgeable and excited about what they do! My son has been going here for two months now and he loves it. 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
