The Mission of St. Francis Music Center is to provide high quality arts education to the rural population of central Minnesota. We are dedicated to the performing and creative arts and committed to high quality instruction, innovative programming and the sponsorship of music events.
St. Francis Music Center opened its doors in the Fall of 1979 with four teachers offering private and group lessons in piano, strings, winds and dance. The Music Center now has a staff of 15 professional teachers. Sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, St. Francis Music Center is located on the second floor of St. Francis Center on the Franciscan Campus. Also located in this building is St. Francis Health and Recreation Center, administrative offices, and the Little Falls Community High School alternative high school.
The Music Center offers private and group lessons for students of all ages in piano, organ, guitar, orchestral strings, voice, band instruments, preschool piano, and percussion. We offer classes in dance, gymnastics, preschool music, theory, composition and music therapy. Approximately 320 students per week take lessons at the Music Center.
Many different studies have proven:
St. Francis Music Center operates a recording studio with state of the art software and equipment. A trained technician will record and master your music with professional results. Whether you want to record a demo or a family music recording or anything in between, we will guide you from start to finish.
Little Falls is located in Morrison County in central Minnesota. The Music Center reaches out to all of Morrison County and to surrounding counties in a 60 miles radius of Little Falls.
St. Francis Music Center plays an integral part of the Little Falls community. Not only do a large number of preschool and school aged children take lessons here, but many adults and senior citizens as well. The Music Center serves as a resource for area schools and churches. We maintain connections with private music teachers in the area and operate a small music store for the benefit of educators and students alike. Community organizations call on the Music Center for advice and recommendations in all music and performance related activities. Several of the church musicians in the area were either students or teachers at the Music Center.
We at St. Francis Music Center believe that music and the arts are a key to nonviolence, to celebrating our many cultures, and to finding the good in humanity.
