Welcome to a new standard
in music education

Welcome to New Music School, the only curriculum-based private lesson music school in Chicago. We are committed to creating a new standard in music education by redefining the music learning experience.

Mentored by Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians, renowned collegiate professors, and other world-class faculty, our students are exposed to unconstrained musical exploration in a fun and engaging atmosphere. Our programs are designed to maximize artistic exposure and classes are offered in all orchestral and band instruments, piano, and guitar. Lessons are held either at our school at 900 N Michigan Ave Level 6 in Chicago, at students' homes, or at satellite locations throughout the city and suburbs - providing the most flexibility and convenience.

Our programs represent excellent college preparatory, just beginning, and adult studies experiences. In addition, NMS students enjoy the opportunity to work with our great collaborative partners and perform throughout the Chicago region.

We invite you to explore our site and get in touch with us for more information. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
