Private Music Lessons
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.
Our teachers have extensive experience teaching various genres of music to students of all ages and levels. We strive to build a love of music in each student and foster their natural creativity in a reliable, challenging, and structured environment.
The vocal instrument is a complex living system and healthy technique is the key to lifelong enjoyment. Let our instructors guide you on your journey of expression and discovery.
The piano is both approachable for young beginners and richly complex for advanced players, and is perfect for learning to read music and building a strong musical foundation.
Guitar & Ukulele
One of the foundational instruments of contemporary music, our guitar instructors teach across genres and will equip you to play for yourself or as part of a group.
The drum kit is an energetic instrument that cultivates precise rhythm and strong music fundamentals. Learn to create fun and complex beats while developing healthy technique.
The low pitch of the bass guitar holds down the groove in almost all styles of music. Learn to play different styles and techniques.
We are proud to offer a variety of different Kindermusik™ classes for newborns to 5yr olds, specifically designed to fit their current developmental stage!
Frequently Asked QuestionsGet Started
How much do lessons cost?
$135/month. At the time of registration, the first payment covers your first month’s tuition and a non-refundable $35 registration fee and then billing is set to a monthly recurring charge.
How do private lessons work?
Private lessons are 30-minute one on one lessons of just you (or your child) and the teacher. We will help you find a day/time and you will attend the lesson at the same day/time each week.
Do you offer make-up lessons?
Yes. If you need to miss a lesson, you can provide a written notice 24 hours in advance in order to receive a makeup credit. You can do this by contacting us or marking yourself absent through the school’s student portal. If you do not provide advance notice of your absence, you will not be eligible for a make-up credit. Make-up lessons can only be scheduled in the time slot of another absent student.
Are students required to attend in-person?
No. In-person lessons are completely optional. You have the option of sometimes doing in-person, and sometimes doing Zoom. Although in-person lessons provide the best educational experience, we understand that it’s at times convenient to have a lesson from home.
Does Bucktown Music offer performance opportunities?
Yes! We know that it’s so important for students to have the opportunity to show off their hard work, and that family and friends love seeing them shine on stage. We have historically held 3 yearly recitals in the beautiful Fine Arts Building downtown. During the pandemic, we hosted a variety of virtual recitals and had people tune in from all over the globe. As of December 2021, we have returned to in-person recitals following recommended health guidelines.
