Private Instruction at the Academy


McHenry County Music Center (MCMC) offers private instruction in orchestral instruments – violin, viola, cello, piano, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, saxophone, flute and voice – at our facility in Crystal Lake. Seven private studios and one larger rehearsal room/classroom are available for lessons. Lessons may be scheduled during the week day, after school, evenings and also on Saturday.


Our instruction uses either Suzuki or traditional instruction according to the age and development of the student. 


Recitals are planned twice a year, in the fall and spring, and all students are encouraged to participate.


The private instruction program at MCMC operates on a schedule closely following the school calendar. While most students start lessons at the beginning of a semester, students may begin at any time there is an opening in the teacher/studio schedule. We also offer a summer term.
