Music is an art form that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Music brings people together. When a person learns to communicate through music, they participate in a shared experience that can foster friendships, build community, and inspire. We serve students from Batavia, Geneva, North Aurora, Elburn, West Chicago, Aurora, St. Charles as well as many other cities within the Fox Valley and western suburbs of Chicago.
Music Matters School of Music, located at 222 E Wilson St. Batavia, IL, is the premiere music school in the Fox Valley. We encourage our students to explore all areas of music. We offer piano lessons, drum lessons, guitar lessons, voice lessons, violin lessons, cello lessons, saxophone lessons as well as lessons for any other percussion or orchestral instruments.
The school also offers several opportunities to perform either as a soloist or in one of our many ensembles. You’re invited to come and experience a new expression of you through music with us.
