Our warm and inviting studio is perfect for solo practice, one-on-one lessons, group rehearsals, and sing-alongs - all of which have been thoroughly tested in the space! Rent your own weekly "studio slot" or book a one-time rehearsal to help prep the band for that special show.
The Lounge serves as a comfortable waiting room for students and parents, a quiet breakout space for workshops, and a festive gathering place for events and receptions
We're decking out the Hot Spot Music Studio with fun furnishings and music memorabilia, befitting of our mission to be Northfield's "music incubator."
The Sunday Jazz Jam is open to all instruments and abilities and takes place most Sunday afternoons from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. (check calendar for confirmation). Musicians gather in a casual, supportive environment to work through charts together. Music is projected on the wall making it easy to follow allong. It's a great way to learn new tunes and try new things - join us!

We've got a vision for the Hot Spot Music studio that keeps growing stronger every day. It's a place where local musicians gather to collaborate, advance their skills and just relax and have fun together. We hope to serve as "your local music incubator" - in whatever way helps you reach YOUR musical vision! Contact us with your next big idea and we'll do everything we can to help you make it happen.
Our piano tuner tells us that we're in the lucky 2% of people who pick up a free piano on Craig's list that's actually a keeper. Our faithful rescue was saved from the dumpster in the nick of time after spending many decades in a historic Lake Nokomis home that was being emptied out for construction. This lovely 1930's Gulbrandsen upright has the perfect tone to articulate a Chopin nocturn or bang out a honky tonk blues. It's just one of the many perks you'll enjoy when you rent a Hot Spot Studio Slot. (Photo credit: Martha Larson)
Kids of all ages feel right at home at the Hot Spot Music Studio. As a working mother of two, Martha loves to come here to practice in peace while her little angels busy themselves for hours in the adjacent play room. There's something for everyone at Hot Spot Music! (Photo credit: Martha Larson)
Have you always wanted to host a house concert...without cleaning the house? The Hot Spot is perfectly suited to intimate, acoustic performances for 30-40 people. Take advantage of the spacious Lobby for ticketing and coats, warm up the crowd with some refreshments in the Lounge, then head to the Studio for an intimate concert experience. Contact us to reserve the space for your next special event. (Photo credit: Daniel Groll)
Wow - you never know what you're going to find when you have a reason to go looking for cool music studio accessories. This 1960's Magnavox stereo came with the rug - another lucky Craigslist find that is a perfect fit for the Hot Spot Music studio room. And with a Bluetooth connection to the Aux input, fire up the i-device and you're ready to roll! (Photo credit: Daniel Groll)
