Welcome to the Music Institute of Chicago’s Winnetka Campus, where at nearly any hour of the day you will hear music being taught, practiced, appreciated, and performed! 


With lessons and classes for 4-month-olds, 104-year-olds, and every age in between, the range of offerings at this location is simply awesome! Whether you are seeking a Musikgarten class for your baby or toddler, voice lessons for that upcoming theater audition, a jazz combo offering new performance outlets, an adult band or orchestra, or private lessons for your young soloist, chances are we have the class and teacher for you. And since we are conveniently located to so many northern Chicago suburbs as well as the I-94 expressway, families from all over – Winnetka, Wilmette, Glencoe, Northbrook, Northfield, Glenview, Chicago, yet also Wisconsin and Indiana – make up the wonderful musical community known as the Winnetka Campus. We hope you contact us soon so that you too can join this amazing music family!
