An alliance of independent music teachers

Serving Chicago's Hyde Park, Kenwood and South Shore neighborhoods

Find your music teacher here!

If you are interested in music lessons, consult our membership directory to find a selection of private teachers at various locations. In addition to contact information for each teacher, many of these listings include links to web pages offering details about members' credentials and teaching philosophies. You can hear teaching artists from our membership in performance at the free concerts of the MTHP Artist Series. Our member teachers work on different schedules, charge different rates and, of course, have different personalities. Whether by phone, e-mail, or a free in-person interview, you can get answers to your questions and find the teacher who is just right for you. Students of MTHP teachers can take advantage of various learning and performing opportunities provided by our organization.
