New students may begin lessons any time during a given semester. Due to student demand, teacher request is on a first-come, first-served basis. New students need to register through the Academy of Music Office by calling 651-631-5108 or emailing

Lessons generally occur on the University of Northwestern campus. On a space-needed basis, instruction may also take place at the Academy's satellite locations:

  • Roseville Covenant Church - no spring 2021 lessons
  • Hope Christian Church
  • Salem Covenant Church - no spring 2021 lessons

Lesson location should be confirmed with the student's private instructor. Get directions by going to the locations tab of Private Lessons.

Fall tuition includes 13 lessons during a 15-week term. Spring tuition includes 15 lessons during a 17-week term. Additional lessons may be added at the end of each term as arranged by the instructor and student at a prorated fee.

Summer registration is flexible; all summer tuition will be charged on a prorated basis. In other words, families choose the number of lessons that will fit their schedules.
