Whether you wish to develop a new skill for yourself or your child, Neighborhood Music will guide you on your journey. We conduct private music lessons in Rockford, IL, for students of all ages, and using ZOOM, we can interact with students outside of the local area. Our pupils range from elementary school students to adults. We will teach you how to play the following musical instruments:

  • Piano

In addition, we teach music theory and technique.

Why Study Music?

Learning to play an instrument is a talent you will enjoy for a lifetime. However, music instruction does more than cultivate performance skills. Studies show that studying an instrument can result in:

  • Improved Memory and Attention Span
  • Increased Sensory Development
  • Increased Patience and Discipline
  • Social Skills Development
  • Posture Improvement
  • Better Academic Skills
  • Improved Self-Esteem
  • Reduced Stress

Our Teaching Methods

We offer one-on-one music lessons so that each learner receives personalized support. However, students also have the opportunity to perform with their peers during recitals, and in a string orchestra. We also follow a comprehensive approach for all our lessons. Our goal is to cultivate students who have a strong grasp of music theory and technique and feel comfortable with experimentation and exploration.

In addition, our instructional plans for string instruments combine traditional training and the Suzuki method. The traditional lessons teach students the technical skills needed for effective performance, while the Suzuki method helps them achieve mastery more quickly. We use Faber, Alfred, and Bastien methods for piano students and the Music for Little Mozarts series for younger students.

For a more interactive learning experience, our piano lessons incorporate an intelligent digital keyboard. This method helps students understand music theory better. To learn more about our teaching methods, contact us today.

Rates and Payment

Our half-hour lessons cost $20. Weekly payments are accepted, and students will not be charged for missed lessons. Reach out to us for any questions about rates and payment.

Piano Lessons for Children and Adults

Learning to play a musical instrument can be more than a pastime. It is a way to unlock talent, creativity, intelligence, self-esteem, dedication, and timing while delivering a sense of relaxation. We believe it is never too early or late to start honing this skill and reaping its lifelong benefits. This is what our students discover when they take piano lessons from Neighborhood Music.

We offer in-person and online piano lessons for beginners and those who wish to further polish their skills. Our lessons are flexible, affordable, and delivered in a patient and caring environment where a love of music and teaching reigns.
