7 benefits of being a CSM student
1. Piano, Guitar, Voice, Singing, Keyboard, Drums, Bass, Violin, Viola, Music Together® (Early Childhood music), and Music Explorers in ONE location!
We are the only school in Champaign, IL that offers all of these popular instruments: Piano, Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Voice, Singing, Keyboard, Bass, Drum set, PLUS Music Together (Early Childhood Music for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers), Music Explorers and a variety of other classes all in one location.
2. Large, qualified teaching faculty in Champaign-Urbana.
We have 12 music teachers, all with either college training or professional performance experience. Our music teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal music goals and helping you achieve them. With at least two to three music teachers for every instrument, we are confident that we have the right teacher to meet your music lesson needs. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and are dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn.
3. Special Awards for Music Achievement.
Daily instrumental practice can become challenging even for the most enthusiastic students and the last thing parents want to do is battle with their kids to get them to practice. That's why we provide multiple motivational ways for students to earn special awards for their musical practice and achievement. Your student can earn Trophies, Certificates and even Pizza Parties to celebrate their accomplishments. This way your students have fun, gain sense of accomplishment and are motivated to practice - all pain free for you!
4. A comfortable waiting area for our clients and their families.
With 2,000 square feet we have the most spacious school and family friendly waiting area in Champaign-Urbana. Instead of waiting in a music retail store showroom, our clients enjoy a waiting area with comfortable chairs, kids’ books, Wi-Fi, magazines and a notice board that highlights our students and exciting, upcoming events. If you decide not to join your child in lessons, you are welcome to relax in our waiting area and talk with the teacher after your child's lesson.
5. Fully stocked music lesson rooms.
Our rooms are stocked with everything needed to get the most out of music lessons, including amps, stereos, full drum kits with pads, keyboards, pianos and more. All you need to bring is your portable instrument.
6. Multiple Free music recitals a year!
We are the only music school in Champaign-Urbana that offers multiple free recitals a year. Every parent wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. Our recitals are held every other month so that students have several opportunities to gain valuable performing experience, set and reach short term goals, and share what they are learning with their parents. For our students these recitals are free and, unlike many schools in Champaign-Urbana, we do not charge recitalparticipation or admission fees. This can only be found at the Champaign School of Music.
7. Month to Month lessons.
The Champaign School of Music does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis.
