Our talented & knowledgeable music instructors teach beginners & more advanced students alike & are here to start you on your musical journey.

Our teachers focus on the individual needs of each student to create a unique lesson plan for a positive music experience & education. Our in-person lessons are safer than ever with masked, socially distant sessions separated by a protective clear vinyl curtain in sanitized rooms with constantly running air purification filter systems. The safety of our students & staff are just as important as a good music education.

Serving all Ages

Best Value in the City

Kids Music Lessons

Our mantra? Students only learn to play the music they love. We offer a non-competitive learning environment in which kids are encouraged to develop their skills alongside one another. This boosts confidence and teaches musicians how to work together to make a piece of music truly come to life.

Our teachers understand how to work with children, as many of our instructors have kids of their own. With years of experience, our skilled staff teaches students how to read, write, and perform the genre(s) of music they’re interested in.

The culminating moment of taking lessons at Flatts and Sharpe is the show we put on twice a year. Kids are grouped together based on their musical interests and age and, after two months of band practices and private lessons, kids get the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience! Opportunities like this are hugely important for emerging musicians to build up their proficiency and confidence, while also making memories that will last a lifetime.

Adult Music Lessons

The conventional wisdom is that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Luckily, you’re not a dog.

When you grow up, life can sometimes seem like an endless list of obligations, dominated by monotony and work. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. At Flatts and Sharpe, we work with adults ranging in age from college students to grandparents to help them grow as musicians or develop a new hobby. Our adult students get the opportunity to explore music in depth via private or group lessons, meet interesting new people, and perform with other Chicagoland musicians.

Interested in playing with other musicians? We support and encourage a large community with players of all skill levels who want to perform live and boost their musical confidence. Get in touch with Flatts and Sharpe and we’ll make sure you’re getting the most out of music.

Group Lessons

Group classes are essential for any musician to gain the valuable skills of playing with others, ear training and working collaboratively. Ensembles introduce the student to the joy of being in a musical community. Once a student gets beyond the beginner level, group classes are a must! Flatts & Sharpe offers everything from classical, to contemporary, to good old rock n’ roll classes. There’s something for everyone. Come see (and hear) the difference! We put the emphasis on FUN!
