CHICAGO – The Music Institute of Chicago will host a free virtual open house showcasing lesson and class opportunities from 2 to 3 p.m. Jan. 24.

Faculty and staff will share information about educational offerings, introduce instruments and provide breakout rooms for Q&A sessions and one-on-one meetings. The Music Institute’s Community Music School offers private music lessons and group classes to thousands of students of all ages and levels each year. In addition to classical training, program areas include Early Childhood Music and Movement, Suzuki Education, Musical Theater, Jazz Studies, Roots and Rock and Adult Studies.

When it is safe to return to in-person instruction, students have a choice of campuses in downtown Chicago (two locations), Downers Grove, Evanston (two locations), Lake Forest, Lincolnshire and Winnetka.

“Whether it’s classical piano, jazz guitar, family ukulele or any instrument or musical style, the Music Institute provides a supportive community that fosters confidence and inspires joy and creativity through music,” said Emily Abraham, dean and vice president of academic affairs. “Our world-class, dedicated teachers specialize in giving students the building blocks they need to make their musical experience challenging, exciting and completely their own.”
