Hear what our students and parents are raving about!


1. ALL AGES & ABILITIES WELCOME: Newborns to Senior Citizens ~ and tons of grade school children and teens and pre-teens ~ are currently enrolled. All ages, experiences, and backgrounds are welcomed with our open door policy. Call and enroll at any time.

2. TALENT AND EXPERIENCE NOT REQUIRED: Every child and every adult can learn. The Hibbing School of Music is founded on the philosophy that every person is a blank slate.  Whom they become is a direct result of their environment and what that experience writes on their blank slate.

3. VERSATILITY OF PROGRAMS: All types, all styles, and all tastes of music are currently being taught here from all decades ~ from classical to modern ~ so there something for everyone to learn that catches their interest and helps motivate students of all ages and backgrounds ~ including special needs ~ to want to learn more.

4. LESSONS ARE CUSTOMIZED TO THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT: Notereaders, self-taught, those who prefer to play by ear are all welcomed and taught by qualified and versatile teachers who are open-minded, accepting, kind and flexible.

5. RESEARCH SHOWS THE DIFFERENCE THAT MUSIC LESSONS MAKE IN A CHILD'S LIFE: Well-documented studies from numerous universities and experts in the field of child development show without a doubt that children who take regular music lessons from an early age simply develop cognitively, physically, linguistically, emotionally, socially, and musically more consistently, more fully, more completely than those children who are not afforded the opportunity to do so.

6. ONE-STOP SHOP: We offer all major instruments (including voice, piano, guitar, drums, violin, kindermusic, band instruments and more). Our guidelines, developed over years in the business, contain recommended ages to begin lessons on the various instruments. Because several instruments and teachers are available, siblings can take different music classes or private lessons at the same time in different rooms with different teachers ~ making our studio very convenient for moms & dads & caregivers.

7. PAST SUCCESS OFOUR PROGRAM: Our students have gone on to achieve amazing things, including performing on national television, national radio, and for Garrison Keillor's "Prarie Home Companion" & Minnesota Twins. While many students have gone on to professional careers in music, all have learned a lifelong love of music.
    ***Testimonials from our students and parents can be viewed at www.livingwatermusic.com/teachingstudios-testimonials.html

8. PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES: Students are invited (never forced) to participate in live public performances on a regular basis ~ such as singing and playing for recitals, contests, parades, fundraisers, non-profits, schools, benefits for the American Cancer Society and Jerry's Kids, fairs & festivals all across northern Minnesota.

9. COMPETITIONS & RECITALS: Students are encouraged (never forced) to participate in public recitals, and older students are given opportunities to enter competitions in music and dance that offer unique experiences and prizes. Among the competitions our director has created include Twin Ports Idol and Iron Range Idol, contests which allow young singers the chance at a recording contract and a complete CD recording opportunity.

10. VALUE ADDED: Extras and perks include free admission of family members to recitals, and a music scholarship program that is unique in all the Midwest ~ more than $205,000 in CD Demo Recording Awards, Savings Bonds, Tuition Waivers, Trophies, Certificates and Special Awards have been given to young musicians and
singers in northern Minnesota over the last twelve years ~ NO OTHER PRIVATE MUSIC STUDIO IN THE MIDWEST HAS THIS TRACK RECORD.

11. TUITION TAX DEDUCTIBLE: Depending upon the classes you choose, your tuition may be tax deductible, further increasing the practical financial value of our music school to you.

12. OUR LONG TRACK RECORD: The studio owner's family has a century-old tradition of musical roots in the area, with the current owners bringing 27 years of full-time experience in the industry. With this level of experience behind the school, we have strong roots and tradition.

13. STERLING CREDENTIALS: Our studio owner / director brings impeccable credentials in piano & voice, and hires only the best and most qualified teachers and staff for all studio positions. All our teachers are highly qualified and professional, some having graduate degrees and achieved the distinction of Master Teacher.

14. FREE REPORTS: Information for parents has been assembled into "free reports", which are available in the school office at no charge. Free Reports outline the benefits of music lessons, how to get the most out of music lessons and dance classes, and why the Hibbing School of Music is the best choice for you.

15. WE PROVIDE AN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST A LESSON: Our program is a complete one, focusing on the complete child, the complete adult, the whole person. The experience of taking our classes is life-changing, because we teach not just music or dance, but life skills that last a lifetime.
