About this pro

Opus Music Academy is a full-service music school offering expert instruction on all instruments, including voice. Instruction takes place at the convenience of your home, or at any of our four locations: Plymouth, St Louis Park, Forest Lake, and Robbinsdale. We continue with hands-on, practical, real-world instruction. We provide encouragement and guidance to help students develop discipline and confidence... while making music fun. 

Opus Music Academy is dedicated to providing a solid foundation of musical literacy that will enable our students to make greater strides in any musical venture, or field, as well as assist them to develop a greater sense of self-confidence, and self-reliance.

Students of all ages and ability levels are welcome at Opus Music Academy. We recognize that every student will come to us with their own unique requirements and goals, as well as their preferred style of learning. We offer adaptive lessons as well.

Our teachers are music educators as well as professional musicians who maintain active careers in the performing arts. They're energetic, reliable, and enthusiastic individuals who possess the knowledge, skills, and savvy necessary to succeed in a challenging field. They are eager to share their knowledge and experience with our students, and will work with them in a supportive, encouraging manner to develop and reach their full potential.

Some of the most wonderful aspects of teaching music is the diversity of students, and how that makes teaching exciting.  Every half hour or hour, you never know what will happen-what joys will be shared-what life lessons will be learned.  Teaching music privately is so rewarding and fun, challenging yet fulfilling.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Each student will receive a complimentary trial Lesson.  This makes sure student and teacher are a good match.  Once the connection is made, we establish a positive and fun rapport with the student. Then, we establish good technique while applying musical concepts and repertoire. Theory is also incorporated to help develop a strong foundation in the language of music. The use of technology and fun apps/games relevent to the lesson are used during lessons as well. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

From Kathy: I have a student who takes Adaptive Piano Lessons.  He is 8 years old and is on the Autism Spectrum. He is non-verbal, but has taken an interest in Piano.  The first lesson, we weren't able to get him in my studio.  But each succeeding lesson he has grown more comfortable.  Most recently, he held my hand and climbed in my lap!  My heart was so warmed, and my soul overjoyed that he had grown to trust me that much.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be sure to take advantage of a trial lesson! You want to make sure that the student and teacher are a good match, and that the goals and teaching/learning styles line up with each other.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your learning style?

What kind of music do you like best?

What do you envision yourself doing/playing? What are your hopes for music lessons?

Do you have access to an instrument (if applicable) on which to practice on a daily basis?
