We are looking for a piano teacher for my two kids and will probably try to contact some of the people that I have seen recommended on this site, but I was wondering what the charge is usually for private lessons around Park Ridge. We started our kids at the Old Town School of Folk music, but it is a hike! They both have some experience, but my son has a shorter attention span (he's 6). We were hoping for combined or consecutive lessons for two kids, with the older daughter doing a longer lesson. The kids also need it to be "fun". (We've tried a few different teachers and they really only had "fun" at the OTSoFM). Any suggestions?

Would you travel to Mt Prospect down Golf Rd? My kids go to a home there of a woman who is a terrific teacher. Also my brother is a piano tuner should you need it :)

Ben's currently taking lessons at Allegro. I'll message you who his teacher is, but I'm sure they have multiple options. When he was younger, he had several fun teachers there.

Def recommend Kyle Cartwright. She lives right across from Lincoln and is a former Playmaker. Super fun!

We use Melinda Hoiland in town, right by us. She teaches piano and flute and her daughter teaches violin.

Kent Wehman is your man. He is one of the nicest, funniest guys I know. Your kids will love him.

I love the OTSFM and we just started at Allegro (same reason - too far away, unfortunately). So far, so good, my 6yo loved his first lesson and the teacher, staff and owner seem great with kids!

Your neighbors son teaches there! Guess who moved back to park ridge and teaches at allegro now? A former musical theatre performer , from Maine south and prairie lakes theatre, you know him well!
