The Music Shoppe’s Lesson Studios

Qualified teachers for every instrument

Backed by a business over 50 years strong, The Music Shoppe has the most effective and affordable lesson studios in the area.  We bring in highly qualified teachers and let them do what they do best.  Between Normal and Champaign, we have over 50 teachers on our staff.  Every band and orchestra instrument has a qualified teacher, as well as other popular instruments like drum set, piano, guitar and banjo.  You can even find lessons for jazz studies, music theory, or home recording!

Who should take lessons?

Music lessons benefit people of all ages.  A quick Google search of “benefits of music” will generate pages of studies linking music to better academic skills, increased coordination, widened social circles, and much more.

The age of our students range from four years all the way up to retirees.  We teach the first-time beginner, to the advanced player looking to prepare for auditions. Everyone is welcome in our lesson studios.
