MCA offers online private music lessons


Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) announces that private music lesson instruction has been shifted online. New students are now being accepted for most instruments, including piano, voice, saxophone, clarinet, and more. 

As with in-person lessons, online lessons may be purchased in a four-, eight-, or 12-lesson package (ranging from $17-$19 per 30-minute lesson). MCA will also be happy to shift lessons to in-person lessons once this can be done safely.


Here’s what’s needed to have a successful online lesson:

• Your instrument.

• A device with a camera and microphone (internal microphone should be fine unless you need to be far away from your device to be at your instrument. Headphones and an external speaker are optional.

•    A wired connection (most reliable) or a strong wireless signal (around 1.5 Mbps for upload speed). A 4G connection traditionally works as well.
