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 17 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.

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.

Robyn Gray was awarded the 2014 Community Arts Leadership Award. The Music Center was also awarded the Small Business Award from the Little Falls Chamber of Commerce.
