How It Works

Match with a Music Instructor

To be matched with a teaching artist, fill out our Student Placement Form or call 612.321.0100 to get started. The Student Placement Form will help our student services team to assist in finding the perfect teaching artist for you based on your individualized goals, experience, interests, and preferences.

Meet Your Instructor

After you are matched with your teacher, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions as to when, where, and how to meet your teacher for the first lesson. At your first lesson (or your student’s first lesson) you and your teacher will discuss goals, preferences, schedule, and studio policies.

Play. Practice. Perform.

Each lesson is personally designed just for you to ensure an exceptional learning experience. Your teaching artist will motivate, inspire, and support you on your musical journey. Your teacher will help you to play the music you love while learning the skills that give a solid musical education.
