Learning to play the piano takes time. But with constant access to OnlinePianist.com?s resources, players can tickle the ivories whenever it suits their schedule. The site combines tutorials for classic songs and current favorites, giving players the incentive to stick with their lessons as they master the choruses of artists such as Taylor Swift, Adele, or David Bowie.
Premium memberships allow pianists to slow down the tutorial to suit their speed or adjust hard key combinations to easier chord constructions. Premium membership also allows players to practice hard sections of their favorite songs on a loop. The site updates its selection with three new tutorials every week, ensuring that students always have fresh material so they don?t have to snoop for hidden concertos in Bach?s diary.
Imagine a group of nationally touring guitarists and accomplished recording artists all beneath one roof, and none of them are playing a single note. It may seem like a waste of talent, but these musicians aren’t at Guitar Cities to play—they’re there to teach. Each instructor has been selected by Guitar Cities's staff who vets their teachers for mastery of their respective instrument, patience, an aptitude for communication, and sensitivity when informing students that air guitar is not considered a real instrument.
These instructors welcome students of all ages for guitar, bass, ukulele, drum, and piano lessons. Guitar Cities offers private instruction, group classes, and “choose your song” lessons. The staff will provide the instruments and a stress-free environment where students can learn everything from basic chords to music theory in various genres. They even have professional studio equipment on which students can record, and offer the chance for students to take the stage at the House of Blues for Guitar Chicago’s Rockfete concert.

TakeLessons can match you with professional, vetted instructors in your area or that offer online courses, to help you meet your goal no matter what your interests or where you live.
Chicago Savvy Tours’ knowledgeable guides unearth the Windy City’s gritty and occasionally hilarious history as they lead groups in and out of architectural landmarks during walking tours heralded by CBS Chicago as one of the city’s best. Tours wind past distinctive architectural works such as Adler and Sullivan's Auditorium building, the Mies van der Rohe–designed Federal Plaza, and the John Hancock building, named after the inventor of autographs. Year-round tour dates are available, with the heaviest rotation of times in the summer. Children are welcome, though like politics and prescription-drug ads, most of the content appeals to adults.
