Music Preparatory School for Youth

For over 25 years, the Music Preparatory School has offered outstanding private piano instruction for Central Illinois youth.  More recently, we have added classical guitar lessons to this imaginative program!  

What makes us distinctive?  You’ll find that both our piano and classical guitar programs share the qualities you expect from a preparatory music program.

  • Outstanding faculty with extensive experience teaching music to children
  • Innovative curriculum – child-focused
  • Competitive pricing for preparatory-level instruction
  • Flexible scheduling
  • A reputation for excellence in music - the Bradley advantage!
