Group Classes

Study with Chicago’s finest music teachers in person or online!

Whether your child is 4 or 18 years old, a beginner or looking to refine their skills, Merit’s group classes will help unlock their full musical potential.

Merit School of Music’s group classes, also known as our Instrumental & Vocal Music Program, provide beginning and intermediate level musicians with the opportunity to grow through music.

Our small group environment provides ample opportunity for group learning and individual support. Students gain knowledge in instrumental technique, musical knowledge, and musical skills, all while maturing personally and educationally. Music classes accelerate cognitive development, give kids and teens a creative outlet, and the opportunity to forge friendships with music-loving peers from across Chicagoland.

As students move through Merit’s sequential-based curriculum by achieving set goals, the experience becomes deeper and more rigorous, eventually preparing students to audition into Merit’s premier program, the Alice S. Pfaelzer Conservatory.
