What a great school! My kids were given a gift certificate for music lessons at this school and it is awesome! The instructors are kind and patient, they teach everything from guitars and drums to studio engineering, and they seem to be supremely knowledgeable from top to bottom. The space is about perfect! In the waiting room alone they have video games and toys to keep the kids happy, a sweet baby grand piano, and even art on the walls for us bigger kids. We are going to purchase the rest of the lessons to complete the session as it is a great value. Twin Cities Music School is truly a gem, my kids had a blast!

My daughter takes piano with Kelly and voice with Brooke. She looks forward to her lessons every week and loves her teachers. Thanks for instilling a love of music in these young minds.

Our little one had such a fun, first experience learning music with Kelly! Kelly did a great job keeping our son engaged using a variety of instruments and techniques. So happy we started our music lesson journey on the right foot! Thanks TCMS!

My son has been going here since they opened. Both Adam and Kelly are patient and fantastic teachers. My son has gotten help with both his bass and sax. Whether it is learning the basics or developing a riff for a jazz band audition Adam has been able to provide instruction in both the theory and the execution. If you want to learn to play or you want to understand the theory behind music Adam and Kelly can help you grow as an artist. I'm now signing my daughter up as well.
