It is all about inspiration…

Everyone of our teacher’s desire is to inspire! Just as they were inspired at one point in their life, which lead them on a lifelong love affair with music, it is a very rewarding privilege to help facilitate that love in another person. And so, every day is a good day at Lake Cook Music Studio, knowing, that through our efforts, we are “passing on the torch” of music to our students, so that it may light their path and guide them their whole life.
