Chicago Children's Music Classes

Find the best music classes for Chicago kids, from silly music for babies and tots, to more serious music classes for future virtuosos. If your little one has a knack for rhythm, moving and grooving, then a music class is a great way to release that inner musician.

Find small group in-person music classes or online / virtual music classes from this list of options.

Note: Some class providers are closed, have moved online, or have otherwise modified their typical class offerings. Please contact the class providers directly to find the most current status.
