Sharing music in Southwest Minneapolis since 2005!

Lake Harriet Location

Linden HIlls Location

The House of Music began in 2005 out of an one extra office of original owner Cindy Smedburg's husbands business above Great Harvest in Linden Hills. With rapid growth, the business was soon moved to it's current cozy Linden Hills location in the heart of Linden Hills just behind (and in the same building as) Heartfelt and next to Zumbro and Rose Street Cafe. In 2009, current owner Brad McLemore, bought the business and with steady growth has opened a second location dubbed the Lake Harriet House of Music located at 4948 Washburn Ave South. Brad has collaborated with an increasingly talented group of teachers and musicians to expand the the music school to include summer camps, group classes, workshops and an early childhood music programs. The House of Music frequently provides opportunities for its student body to perform at one of the many events throughout Linden Hills and Southwest Minneapolis including Woofstock, The Big Cornfeed and other local events. The House of Music proudly offers support and collaborations with local public and private schools and the Linden Hills Business Association.
