Its flagship Conservatory Program uses a robust five-level curriculum, combining private study, chamber experience, and theory/ear training. Guided by Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians and well as world-class solo performers, our program challenges and grows with students; whether they are picking up an instrument for the first time in their lives or are looking to enter the most prestigious music schools in the world.

Programs: New Music School offers private lessons, theory instruction, chamber music, National and International performance tours, to name a few. View our programs here


We'd like to familiarize you with our various policies regarding our program.


Each New Music School academic year is divided into two 16-week semesters in the fall and spring, and two 8-week semesters in the summer, not including breaks. You will work with your teacher to establish a lesson schedule, determine how long each lesson will be, and how many lessons you will take per week.

If you are interested in signing up for the Early Childhood program, please visit its registration page below for relevant information.
