Visit our testimonial page to see what our students are saying. Every year, aspiring music teachers open their own studios, and a year or two later it's closed. The St. Cloud Music Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music, guitar, voice, piano, drum and bass lessons in St. Cloud. While our competitors often struggle, we continue to grow, serving hundreds of students over the past eleven years.
Enjoy several waiting areas within the school instead of standing around in a retail music store showroom. We provide comfortable chairs and magazines as well as our “kids corner” in the main waiting room. Free Wi-Fi and coffee are also available. We provide large observation windows on every door so you can watch your child's lessons while you wait. Or if you prefer, you can sit in on their lesson anytime you like.
Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for your music lessons, including amps, stereos, keyboards and real drums. All you need is your instrument. All studios have large observation windows with plenty of room inside.
St. Cloud Music Academy offers several recitals and performance opportunities throughout the year. Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is worth it, is to have the child participate in our Ensemble program or recitals. Students have an opportunity to perform at holiday and spring recitals. The Ensemble program also performs live several times throughout the year. St. Cloud Music Academy has performed at local venues such as: Pioneer Place Theater, The Paramount Theater, Calvary Event Center, Benton County Fair, and the Battle of the Bands.
The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month to month basis with no long term contracts. If you're ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here.
Due to our central St. Cloud Location, our school is convenient to all surrounding areas. St. Cloud Music Academy is located in the lower level of the Bridge of Harmony Music Store, near the downtown area. With both lessons and the retail sale for all you gear needs in one location, we have everything you'll need to get going now! A large parking lot makes parking easy. It's easy to take the next step! Lessons are first come, first serve, so contact us today to arrange your first lessons. Offering quality guitar, voice, piano, drum, violin, ukulele, and bass lessons to St. Cloud and the surrounding area.

"I would recommend St. Cloud Music Academy to anyone looking for quality lessons. The teachers go the extra mile to make sure your child learns and has fun at the same time. My child's confidence has grown since starting piano lessons."
"I signed up for guitar lessons but my teacher can also play drums. One day I asked if we could play drums instead of guitar, and we did. Now I play both."
"We have had great experience. My daughter's teacher is wonderful and has amazing patience in teaching young students. The owner, Brian, was extremely helpful in getting everything set up. Compared with my experience with lessons in other programs, I think St. Cloud Music Academy is more flexible in really tailoring the lesson for the individual."
