At The ACM School of Music we offer private musical lessons to children and adults in piano, violin, cello, guitar, voice, flute, clarinet and trumpet. The school is part of our larger non-profit organization that promotes music by living composers and, as such, we are especially interested in teaching creativity alongside traditional note reading.

We also incorporate music theory into the lessons so that our students, kids and adults alike, have a solid understanding of the building blocks of music. Understanding chords and key relationships is an important part of knowing how music works.

Our teachers are highly trained, and have years of experience in communicating musical concepts to all ages and learning types. By incorporating the music of living composers into our curriculum and encouraging musical creativity, we keep the lessons fresh, interesting and relevant to diverse groups of students.

We have convenient locations in Avondale/Logan Square, Ravenswood, Rogers Park and the South Loop.
