Hopewell Music Cooperative North was opened in 2012 by two Northside music teachers who were frustrated with the shrinking resources for music classes in Minneapolis North. 50 students enrolled for the Lesson Program, which was the start of a steady growth that reached over 700 students by 2018. In 2013, they added an Ensemble Program because there aren't any ensembles in North Minneapolis. They are dedicated to making the lives of their students and members of the community better through music. They offer a sliding-scale tuition and financial assistance to anyone who needs it. They want everyone to be able to enjoy the benefits of music.
