Our Teachers

Welcome Message from Bucktown Music!

We are delighted to invite you into our studio! Bucktown Music was founded in 2008, with a goal of fostering a dynamic music community for students of all ages and backgrounds.

That dream is now collectively shared by our team of exceptional teachers and administrators. Each member of our dedicated staff knows firsthand how music can spark joy, improve cognitive skills, and promote self-expression; and we are continuously humbled when recognizing just how far our mission has come in changing the lives of so many families.

Whether you are a new parent eager to find musical activities to bond with your infant or toddler, a parent of school-age children who are showing interest in lessons, or an adult who has always wished to learn an instrument, we at Bucktown Music have options for you!

“Our son has been going to Bucktown Music 1-2x a week since he was 6 months old (he’s almost 2) and we cannot say enough great things about the Kindermusik program and, more specifically, the Bucktown Music staff!”

— Shannon Masson

“Bucktown Music has been amazing for our boys, now ages 4 and 19 months. We have been a Bucktown Music family since our oldest was two months old. His appreciation for rhythm and ability to notice similarities between two seemingly unrelated songs is tremendous. ”

— Tiffany Bedwell Reidy

Frequently Asked Questions

Get Started

What instruments do you teach?

We teach piano, guitar, bass, drums, and voice lessons in private and group settings. Check out the group lessons and private lessons.

What will I learn in my private lessons?

Whether you are a beginner or a long-time musician, Bucktown Music instructors are prepared to take you to the next level. We teach music theory, ear training, and offer performance opportunities that will allow you to take your new skills to the stage. Each student’s lessons are 100% personalized to fit their individual needs and goals.

Can you help me with my school auditions?

Absolutely! Our students do exceptionally well through audition processes because they are accustomed to performing and receiving critiques. Auditions can be stressful and intimidating, we love coaching and preparing our students to shine their brightest!

How old does my child need to be to take lessons?

Every child is different, and a trial lesson will give both the instructor and parent an idea of whether or not the student is ready for private lessons. An ideal age to begin lessons would be around 6-7 years, however, we have special classes for toddlers to prepare them for private lessons!

Why Bucktown Music?

Bucktown Music’s one-on-one lessons utilize nationally recognized study materials and are personalized to each student’s individual needs and what they desire to learn. We are proud to offer a variety of different Kindermusik™ classes for newborns to 5-year-olds, specifically designed to fit their current developmental stage!

Do you teach adults?

Yes! We have a large number of adult students. Some of our adult students are trying an instrument for the first time, and some are long-time musicians just looking to improve their skills.
