“I’m a junior studying Jazz Studies here at UMD. I wanted to study with faculty who understood my needs and were able to teach me the things I was really looking to pursue. So for me, that was the faculty here in the Department of Music at UMD and it’s just been an incredible experience to study with faculty who are world class in their instruments, in their field, and have enabled me to grow as a musician and as a person. – Christian Moreno Cova, from Caracas, Venezuela

Our faculty would be more than happy to meet with you and offer a private lesson with your instrument/voice area of choice. Register for a Department of Music Visit and complimentary lesson here.

We offer over 200 concerts and recitals per year. Guest artists-in-residence give you the opportunity to learn from world-renowned masters.

Weber Music Hall is a beautiful landmark on our campus, offering our students a stellar performance space and a 350-seat concert venue for the community. The campus is located in Duluth, Minnesota, a medium-sized city built on the shores of magnificent Lake Superior.

The Department of Music at the University of Minnesota Duluth is proud to be a fully-accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
