Private Lessons – NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE!

Study with Chicago’s finest music teachers from the comfort of your home!

In an effort to keep our students, faculty, and community healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re temporarily moving all of our private lessons online. Make the most of this time by picking up a new instrument or deepening your practice with virtual private lessons. Once our building is back open, you can continue your private lessons in person at 38 South Peoria Street.

Merit School of Music’s faculty provide expert private instruction on all instruments for classical and jazz music, and for students of all ages and all levels of musical ability.

Working one-on-one with our skilled and supportive faculty, private lesson students explore their individual talents and interests, develop skills and overcome challenges. Lessons are scheduled at a time that is convenient to both the student and teacher for either 30, 45, or 60 minutes once per week.
