Music Lessons for Kids in Northbrook

At Bach to Rock, we know it’s never too early for children to get started with music. Our music lessons for kids 5-7 years old offer a perfect entry point for young musicians. In these classes, kids learn how to play instruments for the first time and build core skills for future music lessons.

In addition to music lessons for kids, Bach to Rock offers a wide range of music lessons for toddlers, preschoolers, youths, and adults!

Bach to Rock Music Lessons for Kids

Bach to Rock offers two types of kids music classes. These classes are a perfect fit for ages 5-7 and can help prepare students for private music lessons.

Our most popular kids music program is Kids n Keys. This ongoing program offers kids piano lessons in a fun and interactive group class! Students get to learn basic piano and keyboard skills in weekly classes, while having fun with other kids the same age! Our Kids n Keys students learn hand positioning, basic fingering techniques, and how to play simple songs.

Kids n Keys also teaches young kids core musical concepts, including how to read music. This makes it a perfect class for early musicians who want to prepare for private music lessons — no matter what instrument they ultimately play!

In addition to Kids n Keys, we offer our Fun with Music class. This kids music education class lets students try different instruments before starting music lessons. Over the course of 10 lessons, students will get a hands-on look at the piano, guitar, ukulele, drums, and singing. This way, young musicians can easily choose which instrument they want to learn!

As with Kids n Keys, Fun with Music includes instruction in basic music theory and musical concepts. We recommend Fun with Music for kids who want to start music lessons but aren’t sure which instrument they want to play.
