The Sound of a New generation




We offer piano lessons for children beginning at age 4 and for adults of any age. Lessons for very young children focus equally on playing at the piano and on rhythm and music games. Our approach makes it easy for children of all ages to learn while staying engaged and interested in music.

Piano lessons take place in Chicago in any of our three locations: Avondale/Logan Square, Ravenswood or Rogers Park or virtually.

As a non-profit with the mission of integrating musical creativity into everyday life, we encourage our students to create their own music in addition to learning the fundamentals.

We have schools in the following Chicago locations:

Avondale/Logan Square: 2860 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Ravenswood: 1758 W. Wilson Ave
Rogers Park: 7002 N. Western Ave.

Thank you for all that you’ve done for the Film Scoring Class If this class didn’t exist, I probably wouldn’t have been able to explore and pursue this thing I’m so passionate about and so enjoy.

ACM is a great place to take lessons! My son Ezra has improved at the cello so much since starting there and he's even composing his own music now!

Love this school! I came in wanting to learn a Yann Tiersen song and my teacher got it by ear, transcribed it and taught me to play it.
