I still have my half size violin and even though I only dream of playing it again, I keep it very safe and close to my heart. I may not remember anything about playing the violin that he taught me, but the lessons he taught about life and the appreciation of it throught music will forever be within.

MYA has two ways to help you find a private teacher!
1. Introducing new Private Lesson Interviews
MYA is committed to matching music students in the Chicagoland area to professional, experienced, and reputable private teachers. If you are looking for a new teacher and are not sure where to start searching, MYA's BRAND NEW program is perfect for you!
Any student and their family can come to the MYA Center and participate in a comprehensive interview for just $30 that will be reviewed by MYA's music directors. During the interview, students can play repertoire they have been working on and discuss ideal location for lessons, personalities, experience, dedication to practicing, family budget and availability. Within a week of the interview, MYA will personally match each student with a private teacher.
For more information or to schedule an interview, contact Program Administrator Rebecca Rudy at email@example.com or (847) 926-9898 ext. 305.
MYA also maintains a website, www.privatemusicteaching.org,to help facilitate the process of finding the right teacher for each child. Teachers use this website to post their background information, training, teaching philosophy, and lesson information. You can search for a teacher near you by simply entering a zip code and instrument.
