Adult Guitar

The Music Room’s guitar classes are designed to guide the student through basic and intermediate guitar technique and musicianship. Classes are structured in four progressive levels: Guitar 1, Guitar 2, Guitar 3 and Guitar Ensemble. Learn more.


Adult  Ukulele

The ukulele makes an excellent first instrument, especially for the adult with no prior experience. With only four strings and many chords possible with one or two fingers, the ukulele is easy to pick up and hard to put down. Three levels are offered: Ukulele 1, Ukulele 2, Ukulele 3, and Ukestra. Learn more.

GarageBand Workshop

Learn how to play, record, edit and share your original music.  In this class students ages 13 and up will explore  the creative and technical features of GarageBand for iOS. All that is needed is an iPhone or iPad with the GarageBand application. It’s recommended that students bring Apple Earpods or compatible headphones for their iPhone or iPad. Students that are interested in recording electric guitar into GarageBand will require an iRig in order to plug directly into their iPhone or iPad. Learn more.

 FREE Ukulele and Guitar Circles

Free Ukulele and Guitar Circles provide an opportunity for players of all ages to come together to play familiar, fun and favorite songs.  These sessions are not intended to instruct, they are to provide a platform for camaraderie in music. A working knowledge of several basic chords will make for an enjoyable experience. Circle sessions will be held from July 6 to August 8 in the Gazebo in Towne Square (150 S. Palatine Road, Palatine)Register here.
