Music is an art form that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Music brings people together. When a person learns to communicate through music, they participate in a shared experience that can foster friendships, build community, and inspire. We serve students from Batavia, Geneva, North Aurora, Elburn, West Chicago, Aurora, St. Charles as well as many other cities within the Fox Valley and western suburbs of Chicago.
We are now in our new location, the old Louise White School in Batavia.

We offer piano lessons, drum lessons, guitar lessons, voice lessons, Ukulele lessons, saxophone lessons as well as lessons for any other percussion instruments.
Our goal is to have music in people's lives. No matter their ability.
