Piano for Kids



All lessons in our Ravenswood and South Loop locations are now being given online at least until December 2020. In Avondale and Rogers Park we have limited in-person availability

Taking lessons at ACM means being part of an organization that creates innovative programs like the Sound of Silent Film Festival and the Thirsty Ears Festival, Chicago’s only classical music street festival.

ACM regularly commissions music from composers around the world, produces a concert series at the Davis Theater and has been featured on PBS, WFMT, WBEZ, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times to name a few.

As a non-profit with the mission of integrating musical creativity into everyday life, we encourage our students to create their own music in addition to learning the fundamentals.

We offer piano lessons for children beginning at age 4. Lessons for very young children focus equally on playing at the piano and on rhythm and music games. Our approach makes it easy for children of all ages to learn while staying engaged and interested in music.

We offer student recitals every other month (currently happening virtually,) giving students a chance to meet other young musicians and learn to perform in a friendly environment.

Piano lessons take place in Chicago in any of our four locations: Avondale/Logan Square, Ravenswood,  Rogers Park or the South Loop. A half hour lesson is $36 and we’re on a monthly enrollment so it’s $144 per month.
