Twin Cities Piano Studio

Hello! My name is Elise Santa and I am a teacher, musician, and music director based in Savage, Minnesota. I currently co-chair the instrumental music department at St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists and professionally music direct locally and abroad.

I re-started teaching through a formal piano studio here in the wake of Covid-19 after music directing a production of SIX on Norwegian Cruise Lines when the pandemic swept through. I have previously held a private studio and hold over a decade of piano instruction along with a wealth of music teaching in public, private and charter schools.


Alongside everyone else, I have made the dramatic switch to virtual learning. This transition has been incredibly smooth as piano lessons have typically been an independent activity. Music lessons fit perfectly in this time of physical distancing. I aim to provide greater access to music education especially during this difficult time.
