Music Gallery Academy

Our Mission

The Music Gallery Academy's mission is to identify and achieve each student's unique musical potential and provide the challenge, guidance, and inspiration to equip them for life-long enjoyment of music and learning through study, performance, and focus on the arts.


The Music Gallery Academy has been offering the best music lessons in the Chicago area since 1974. We aim to continue our forty-five year commitment to excellence and student success by offering personalized and professional instruction to students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. 

            Guitar: Our guitar instructors have helped countless guitarists of all ages and skill levels unlock the fretboard. Explore a variety of techniques and genres while learning simple to advanced music theory, improvisation, rhythmic studies, fretboard visualization, and more! Jam on your favorite tracks and discover the tools to make any guitar sing.   

              Voice: Our vocal coaches can help you discover the full potential of your voice with exercise specially designed to help develop your musical ear, breath support, tone production, and vocal control.



Drums & Percussion:  Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort while reinforcing the rudimentary concepts the give drummers great time, technique, and control.



Piano: Our piano teachers help students understand the language of music with a method that is practical and accessible to absolute beginners and experienced musicians alike. Our piano lessons cover sight-reading, music theory, rhythm, technique, ear training and more. Lessons are tailored to each students ability and style preference.



Ukulele: The Ukulele is a  school favorite for entry level children through adults. The ukulele can be as beautiful and interesting as any other instrument, but its small size and soft strings make it the ideal choice for delicate hands. The chord shapes learned on the ukulele transfer easily to the guitar, making it an excellent option for young aspiring guitarists.



 Bass Guitar: Our bass instructors have helped many students construct strong bass lines, develop a great sound, and relax into a groove. We cover styles and techniques from Larry Graham's funky thumb to Paul McCartney's melodic walk. The Bass Guitar lessons also cover slap bass, fretless bass, rhythm and groove, music theory, technique and reading and writing music!
