Since the above course is only offered in the summer, we encourage you to join our Piano Preparatory Program which runs during the school year, please see below for more details:

The Preparatory Piano Program
The program consists of a combination of group and private instruction for ages 6-14. Group lessons offer students peer reinforcement, social interaction, ensemble experience, and group activities. Private lessons give students the necessary individual attention for technical development and interpretive and expressive insights. By combining these two approaches, students receive a comprehensive 15-week curriculum. Students will participate in one 30-minute private lesson and one 50-minute group lesson each week. For more information call 847.925.6000, ext 7236. The program runs in the fall and spring of every year. Click the link below to learn more about it:
