When you choose to take lessons at MSM, you are part of something bigger! 
Who we are:


We hire only the best area teachers. We give all our teachers the flexibility to handle their own lesson scheduling and we pay a competitive wage!


We welcome ALL students. We teach music using Suzuki AND traditional methods. We believe music doesn't have borders or age barriers.

Financial Aid

We spend the majority of our time working to make it possible for every student to learn regardless of their economic situation. From scholarships to state and local partnerships, we can make YOUR lessons happen.


We cultivate relationships within southwestern MN sending our teachers to communities in need of music instruction. 


  MSOM Mission Statement



Our mission is to provide excellent music instruction to students of every age and level of ability regardless of their economic situation, facilitating their goals, and encouraging each to share their gifts within the community they live.
