“Piano Power has been very easy to work with. They are communicative, and I have really liked both instructors we’ve had.” -Rachel, parent, Chicago

Piano Power’s home office is located in beautiful Avondale, in the heart of Chicago. We currently serve Chicago piano students in Bucktown, Wicker Park, Edgewater, the Gold Coast, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Lincoln Square, Logan Square/Avondale, the Loop, South Loop, and Rogers Park. We love our Chicago students, and we’re happy to be a part of their active, fun lives.

Why is it great to be a music student in Chicago?

With so many live music and art resources at their fingertips, piano students in Chicago have plenty of opportunities to enrich their music education in addition to lessons with Piano Power.

Many of our students enjoy the family-friendly programming at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and The Lyric Opera of Chicago, as well as great outdoor venues like the Grant Park Music Festival.

Chicago students of jazz are especially lucky, with countless jazz venues across the city offering a chance to experience the dynamic genre live. The annual Chicago Jazz Festival and Chicago Blues Festival are amazing opportunities to sample what the Chicago music scene has to offer in a family-friendly outdoor setting.

Age recommendations

Our private lessons are appropriate for pianists aged 5 to 105. For students younger than five, we’re happy to discuss alternatives to private lessons. Somewhere around age 5, a combined increase in finger strength, reading ability, and concentration makes a student ready for private lessons.

Practice expectations

Your piano teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of piano practice is regularity. We know our students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to piano practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make piano a regular part of his or her day.

Digital pianos welcome

We recognize that not all of our students have pianos in their homes. We are happy to conduct lessons on digital pianos as well. Unlike a keyboard, a digital piano has weighted keys that provide the feel and touch of a traditional piano. For many of our families, it’s the perfect solution.

Piano Power recitals

If your student has been receiving piano instruction with Piano Power for three months or more, he or she is invited to participate in our annual spring recital. Held in June and December, the recital is a wonderful, low-key way to celebrate your student’s achievements. Our pianists perform a huge variety of repertoire — from classical to original compositions to Top-40 radio hits.

We’re ready to match you with a great piano teacher!
