Our Impact

Since 1907, MacPhail has responded to the changing artistic needs of the state of Minnesota. In 2021, we will serve 15,000 participants through the following core programs, each of which receives dedicated support from our corporate, foundation and government donors:

Our Geographic Reach

MacPhail is among the largest community music schools in the nation and the largest employer of teaching musicians in Minnesota. In addition to our flagship location in Minneapolis, we operate sites in Apple Valley, Austin, Chanhassen, and White Bear Lake, each with programming uniquely suited to the needs of its respective community. In September 2020, we completed a full merger with Madeline Island Chamber Music, a nonprofit organization devoted to educating and nurturing the next generation of musicians through concentrated study and performance of chamber music on historic Madeline Island in Wisconsin. Since 2011, we have also partnered with schools throughout Greater Minnesota through our Online School Partnerships programming, which has offered music education for rural and/or low-income/marginalized pre-K through 12th grade students via accessible, innovative, and cost-effective online learning experiences.
