 From Private Lessons and Clinics to Instrument  Repairs

We offer unsurpassed services to meet your needs 

Private Lessons

Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned pro, our highly qualified instructors structure lesson plans around the individual student; guiding them down the path of their choosing while elevating their musical knowledge and skills. Private lessons are held weekly in half hour sessions in our studios. 

Clinics & Ensemble Classes

BAND CAMP - Joliet's ORIGINAL rock school where you learn to play in a REAL band. Students are placed with other students where they learn all the fundamentals of being in a working band; including choosing songs, coming up with a band name, and promotion of the live gig they perform in at the end of the program. This is a 12 week program from May through July. Groups meet weekly for one hour sessions in our rehearsal space. 

Theatre Camp - We are proud to announce our partnership with Jenny Jasper in offering our area's budding actors and actresses a two week Theatre Camp for grades 4th - 8th! The kids will learn all the fundamentals of theatre performance and put on a showcase for their friends and families at the end of the program. Includes a commemorative t-shirt and a free half-hour private vocal lesson. 


Ensemble Classes - These genre specific group courses give you the opportunity to play with other people on a regular basis in a comfortable setting where you can listen to and learn from each other. Learn different styles from Blues to Rock and everything in between. These are 8 week programs that meet weekly for 90 minute sessions in our rehearsal space. Call for dates and info.


Clinics - Each month we play host to music clinics given by some of the best and brightest in the industry. Call for dates and info.
