      The Quick Lowdown on Private Lessons:



The most efficient way to learn an instrument

Private lessons are the most traditional and effective way to learn a musical instrument.  The speed of modern day technology has not replaced the efficiency of learning an instrument when cultivated between a nurturing student/teacher bond.


Lesson lengths vary
We offer lessons in 1/2 hr, 3/4 hr and 1 hour increments.  The decision to take longer lessons depends on the age and level of the student balanced with between the commitment of more time and money.  For longer lessons you will need to provide more time to practice at home which should be considered.  If you aren’t sure, we recommend starting with 1/2-hr private lessons which can be upgraded later if you like provided there is room in the teacher’s schedule.


Scheduling day/time arranged individually

Private lessons are scheduled on an individual basis and you may begin private lessons at any time, If you begin in the middle of the session this will not affect where your lesson plan will begin because all lessons are customized for each student.  The availability for all instruments will vary and most are offered eveyday but Sunday.  You choose one lesson time per week and meet at that time every week. 


Call 312 416-0622 now or email us  in order to find out what we have available that might work with your schedule. 


Our sessions are organized into three a 16-week sessions beginning in January, May, and September however registration for lessons is ongoing and you may begin at anytime.  We offer tuition packages in 16, 8 and 4 week options.  For our tution rates and studio policy you can view these online.
