Piano Lessons & Classes in Near North Side
Find the perfect teacher or instructor in Near North Side for private piano lessons in your home or in their studio.
Piano lessons differ from Classical Piano lessons by being more about what the student wants to learn, instead of following a scholarly path toward becoming an accomplished pianist. Read my profile carefully before you sign up with me. There will still be technical exercises, but they might be tailored to the goal of playing a certain style.
I can teach a little bit to beginners about playing by ear and using lead sheets, but My Thing is the old fashioned, old lady piano teacher you probably imagine. There are reasons that the traditional methods became traditional. They work.
Students can take Piano lessons, IF they have regular access to a piano or minimally acceptable keyboard. Regular access can mean three or four times a week at a friend's house, or a church, or a library. If all you have is an unacceptable keyboard, sign up for Music Theory and I can still teach you how to read keyboard music, and play scales, chords, and songs by ear. Thinking it's possible to learn to ...
(1) Singing student learns how own body functions as a musical instrument, on a flexible schedule.
(2) Student learns how other artists use music to communicate, advocate, heal, and grow.
(3) Student learns how to use music for self-discovery of artistic aims.
I am Miss Melodie F, a highly experienced private lesson teacher of voice, piano, and theory. Please read my profile carefully before you sign up with me. Complete beginners are welcome. Advanced lessons are available for singing and voice only.
Are you an adult who misses the love of music you enjoyed before life responsibilities took over? If so, you are like most of my recent students.
I teach adult students private music lessons. My specialties and approaches are
(1) blending what the student wants with what the s
(2) classical vocal technique from a body awareness perspective,
(3) how to sight-read keyboard scores, and
(4) music theory translated into something that makes sense.
If you don't practice that's not a deal breaker, but admit it so I can modify the plans to give you your money's worth.
You may schedule a lesson when you want or can afford one rather than being forced to take a lesson at the same time every week; that is the Schedule-As-You-Go option where lessons have no recurring schedule slot. I have weekday office hours available on a Schedule-As-You-Go basis which you won't find on the general availability information here on this profile.
Singing and Voice
Singing and voice lessons have minimum 45min duration. Do you want to do the physical work it takes to become a better singer? Do you have a place to practice? Have you read the "Your First Singing Lesson" section found on each Singing or Voice Subject Page and still want to take singing lessons with me? If you can’t say “Yes” to all of these things I can still work with you. Sign up for Music Theory lessons instead, tell me what you want to learn, and we can go from there.
Do you have regular access to a “real” piano, with weighted keys and a damper pedal? If all you have is an unacceptable keyboard sign up for Music Theory and I can still teach you how to read keyboard music, and play scales, chords, and songs by ear.
Music theory lessons are the most flexible option for general curiosity. You don't need much more than pencil and paper to start music theory lessons. Tell me what you’re interested in and I’ll teach it from a Music Theory perspective.
The current fee for a 45min lesson appointment in my studio is $41. Online singing and theory lessons are the same price. Lessons must be prepaid, with a strict 24hr cancellation deadline.
My teaching studio is a residential office in a high second floor walk-up near the intersection of Chicago and Ashland. I might be able to travel within East Village / Ukrainian Village / Wicker Park / Noble Square for an additional $15 travel fee. If I travel to your location we can negotiate younger ages and group fees.
Upfront deal breakers:
• I have a problem with fragrances. If I can smell something on you I may not be able to work with you. We could discuss online lessons as an alternative.
• One quietly observing adult human guest is welcome with 48-hour notice.
• If you are a singing student you need a place where you can practice and you must read the Your First Singing Lesson section prior to your first cancellation deadline.
• If you don’t have regular access to something that can legally be called a piano, including weighted keys and a damper pedal, don’t take Piano lessons.

First time playing piano? Resuming after years (decades?) of not playing the piano? No matter your age or experience, you can always learn and improve!
Pop songs, jazz ballads, classical pieces, or movie/game themes, there must be something you are interested in playing and get better!
I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

I learned piano so I would have more to offer while being involved in my praise teams. It is so much more fun than I ever would have thought and having a skill like piano is amazing. You really can take it anywhere. Being able to play piano to a song is very fun and rewarding even if you don't want to sing along.
