Our Mission Statement
Kramer’s School of Music is dedicated to teaching the art of music and performance to students of all ages and ability levels. We aim to enrich the lives and intellect of our students and provide them with musical skills that will last a lifetime.
Kramer’s School of Music, formerly known as Kramer’s Music Studio, was founded in Eden Prairie in the year 1999. Elena Kramer, a Master’s trained piano performer and educator, began to teach young students in the art of piano performance and group theory instruction. A few years later, Eleonora Kramer joined her mother after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Music Performance. Together, they have expanded their school and taught hundreds of students over the past 14 years. They specialized in piano instruction, violin instruction and musical theory of all levels. By encouraging students to participate in competitions, festivals, state theory exams and recitals, Kramer’s School of Music became a well-known name within the Minnesota musical community.
Now having established themselves in the Eden Prairie community, Kramer’s School of Music aims to expand once again and become an established School of Music in the Plymouth area. We are offering instruction for many different instruments and all aspects of musical education.
