Music Classes For Kids

Whether you have little kids starting their first music classes, big kids ready to play an instrument, or a kid who just loves to sing and would like to explore vocal lessons… we have a comprehensive guide just for you, broken down by category. Our list is sponsored by Allison Hanscom, an experienced local piano instructor:

“Would you like to help your children develop to their fullest potential? Studies have repeatedly shown that children who take music lessons show a significant increase in their ability to reason and perform complex cognitive functions. My name is Allison Hanscom, and I have been a piano instructor in the Western Springs/LaGrange area for over 35 years. I would consider it a joy and a privilege to work individually with your child providing private piano instruction. I teach all types of music, individually tailored to your child’s interests and abilities. I believe music lessons should be fun and interesting, and I’ll strive to cultivate in your child a lifelong love, appreciation, and knowledge of music through piano study.”
