INSPIRING Curiosity, Creativity, AND A Love OF LEARNING.

Grow Music Academy's mission is to provide the highest quality music lessons to students at all ages and levels. We are a locally-owned, curriculum-based music school, offering private music lessons for beginners and advanced students. Our highly qualified faculty have years of experience in performance and music education. Lessons are currently available in piano and voice for every age and level of expertise as well as early childhood music and movement classes

We believe there should be joy in learning, and are creating a new standard in music education. Well known  pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki said,
“Children learn to smile from their parents.”
 
 Our students are exposed to musical exploration in a fun and engaging atmosphere, and are mentored by professionals who take a personal interest in providing the best lessons in the area. A supportive parent is the key to fostering a positive and motivational learning environment at home that leads to weekly lesson progress. This comes from setting a practice routine from day 1 and giving consistent encouragement and support to help your child reach their fullest potential. As a team, we will work together to give your child the lifelong gift of playing piano. 

 The AIM Conservatory program for our most committed piano students, improves students' listening skills, develops positive ways to interact with others in creating a final musical product, improves rhythm skills, helps children in learning and practicing effective rehearsal techniques. In addition to weekly piano lessons, students in the conservatory attend bi-weekly theory classes culminating in theory and performance exams at Northwestern University each year.
