Universal Music Center- Enriching Lives Through Music Education

Thank you for your interest in Universal Music Center! Our mission is simple: Enrich lives through music education.

Your support provides funding for our tuition scholarship program, loaner instrument program, and more. We have built our organization to ensure that EVERYONE can access music education, regardless of their financial means. We need your help to continue this mission.

Universal Music Center was created and founded by lifelong professional musician and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee band The Lovin' Spoonful drummer, Mike Arturi. Drawing from over four decades of local, national and world wide live performance, teaching and industry related business experience UMC was engineered to deliver value and tangible positive results. 

In addition to gaining technical and aesthetic skills in a range of musical forms and instruments, UMC’s core program provides students the opportunity to gain the life skills of preparation, professional conduct, team work, and pride in accomplishment. It includes 1:1 private lessons, a monthly music workshop open to our entire student body, and optional quarterly live performances. The live performance option gives students a sense of focus and make their progress a tangible reality. In 2020, we introduced online music lessons, as well as hybrid online/in person lesson tracks.

UMC is located in Red Wing, MN and serves Goodhue County and its surrounding areas. In addition to its core program, UMC offers a lesson only option, a Native American flute program, a summer songwriting program, an after school children’s songwriting / music appreciation course, Drum Circles for health, community and corporate populations, the Complete Concert Creation course, and more.
