Community Music Calendar & Lesson Policy

Apprentice Program



The Community Music Program consists of private music lessons to students of all ages and levels. Lessons are available in the following areas:

Violin, Viola, Bass, Guitar, Piano, Organ, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, and Voice

Students have the opportunity to study with professional teaching artists who possess advanced degrees in music and/or significant professional teaching and performing experience. Apprentice teachers are qualified UMD music majors who have completed methods and or pedagogy courses relevant to their specific discipline and have demonstrated evidence of effective teaching. Select Department of Music faculty may also be available upon request.

Performance opportunities take place on and off campus. A variety of studio recitals, community outreach performances, and Weber Hall concerts occur throughout the year.


To find a teacher that fits your needs, please contact us at (218) 726-7011 or email . Prior to registration, students must first communicate directly with an instructor or through the Fine Arts Academy Office. Please do not register before confirming teacher availability and scheduling options.


Please consult with your instructor regarding scheduling and the appropriate number of lessons or which to register. New Online Registration option available now!


Not sure about beginning a new instrument? Would you like to meet with an instructor before registering for lessons? Still have questions about Community Music lessons? Give us a call we would be happy to assist with any questions you may have.
