The People’s Music School is the largest completely tuition-free music school serving Chicago metropolitan area children, focusing on removing barriers to access for students who otherwise would not have the benefits of intensive music instruction.
Led by professionally-trained faculty, students receive tuition-free intensive music education for an average of four hours per student per week in our four core areas of music instruction: music theory, group instruction, individual instruction, and performance ensembles.
Young students at The People’s Music School begin their musical journeys with General Music, a program that teaches the foundations of music designed for elementary students grades K – 5.
SERVICE, LEADERSHIP, ARTISTRY, AND MENTORSHIP (SLAM)
Our SLAM program gives advanced, older students the opportunity to build on their skills of discipline, teamwork, critical thinking and self-assurance and apply them as they face new challenges.
