THE CHICAGO ACADEMY OF MUSIC was founded with the goal of offering a well-rounded music education to children, teenagers and adults from all backgrounds, through private and group instrumental lessons, orchestra and choir participation, and classes on general knowledge of music culture and theory. Beginners and students of any level are welcome, and benefit from Chicago’s top musicians as faculty members. As public school funding for the arts dwindles, countless Chicago children are left without any means to explore their musical talents with good teachers. We at CAM believe that all children and adults deserve the chance to hone their skills and engage in their passions. The Chicago Academy of Music will give children this chance.
Additionally to hands-on music education, students, their families, and the community at large will benefit from regular concerts and arts programming designed by the International Beethoven Project, which will showcase the joys and rewards of music-making with critically-acclaimed professionals in all styles, from classical to blues, cabaret to flamenco, and much more.
Our aim is to welcome every motivated child, regardless of his and her ability to pay tuition. In order to make this possible, we continue to seek donors and sponsors as well as in-kind support through donation of instruments, equipment and other supplies, as well as through the help of volunteers. Please let us know if you would like to help in any way.
We look forward to meeting you!
