Hi, I'm Dorthy, Chicago Director of City Strings & Piano! I've put together a team of Chicago's best violin, viola, cello and piano teachers to bring great lessons right into your home. Our teachers are experienced with students of all ages and pride themselves on always being engaging, encouraging and fun in lessons. They are active performers throughout the Chicago area and hold degrees from Chicago's finest music schools.
Suzuki lessons are available for all instruments. Please let us know if you are interested in that when you contact us, or if you'd like to hear more about it. Our teachers are available for lessons all over the Chicago area, including Des Plaines, Orland Park, Schaumburg and Wheaton.
Lessons in your home offer many advantages for busy Chicago families. Aside from the obvious time saving benefit, young students feel comfortable in their surroundings, allowing them to connect with their teacher and instrument. Teachers can also assess the practice environment and make suggestions that can help your child's progress.
We come to your home for the lessons, but you still get the full music academy experience. We host semi-annual recitals and provide optional group classes, instrument rental and sales. We want to make everything easy for you so that you can focus on your child's musical success.
When you contact us to start lessons, we will work together to find a lesson time that consistently works for you and your teacher. Regular lessons are important to ensure your child makes excellent progress, and we want to set you up right from the beginning! A regular tuition amount is charged to your credit card monthly. Tuition information can be found in the dropdown menu under Sign Up, below.
