Private String Lessons

We offer private violin, viola, and beginning cello lessons to children as young as three years old in Riverside, IL.

At Anderson Music we are fortunate to offer both Suzuki and traditional lesson curricula to our students. Click here to learn more about the difference between the two.

If you’re unsure of which track would be the best fit for your unique needs, we encourage to to sign up to receive more information, schedule a FREE call with our director, or schedule an in-person consultation to get a mini lesson and make sure this is a good fit for you.

Group Classes

Group class is a required component of Suzuki-based string education, but is not part of the traditional curriculum. In addition to weekly private lessons, Suzuki students meet in a group setting on a weekly basis.

Meeting in a group setting offers critical learning opportunities, including:

  • Socialization
  • Review
  • Disguised repetition
  • Enrichment
  • Ensemble skills
  • Confidence

All students are welcome to attend. Classes are organized by age and ability level and will meet on Mondays beginning Fall 2023.


We have limited availability for coaching in single sessions and multi-lesson packages. Whether you are preparing for an audition, an upcoming playing exam, or just busy, our faculty can provide you with crucial guidance and and technical expertise to keep your skills sharp. Single 45 minute coaching sessions begin at $70.

Adult Students

Adult students are always welcome at AMS – in fact, as of 2023, we have six adult students to boast about. That’s 15% of our enrollment! We love working with adult students (and have a lot of feelings about it). Adult students are encouraged to get in touch prior to setting up a consultation.
