If you’re searching for a fun way to improve your confidence, patience, and creativity, try picking up an instrument. Right now, several Oak Park music schools are offering online classes for all abilities. If you’re ready to start learning, book your first lesson from the comfort of our apartments in Oak Park.
1. Oak Park School of Music
The mission of the Oak Park School of Music is to develop the whole musician. Founder Joann Cho hails from Los Angeles, and she earned both her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California. Joann enjoys sharing her passion for music with the world, and so she opened the school to help students compose, improvise, and perform. The one-on-one virtual classes are held on Zoom. If you don’t already have your instrument, the instructors are happy to cover fundamentals and music theory until your instrument arrives. You can learn to play the trumpet, saxophone, horn, and more.
2. Cappelli Institute of Music
The Cappelli Institute of Music has been an Oak Park fixture since 1980. Owner Jeff Cappelli comes from a musical family with a legacy that spans a century, and he himself is a talented pianist who has taught at the college level. Jeff and the other instructors have won numerous awards and play at venues throughout Chicago. The online classes include instruments such as the guitar, viola, and harp.
3. School of Rock
The instructors at the School of Rock believe that it’s never too late to gain musical skills. To make learning exciting, they teach using famous rock songs, encouraging students to practice between sessions. They are offering private virtual lessons, known as School of Rock Remote. Pick up instruments including the guitar or piano, or learn to sing.
After a rewarding lesson at one of these Oak Park music schools, order a gourmet pizza to go from a nearby pizzeria.
