Bellas Artes Studio


“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music” 

S. Rachmaninov

Welcome to Bellas Artes Studio.


“I've never known a musician who regretted being itself is not going to let you down.”

Virgil Thomson

            The Bellas Artes Studio is a private music studio, situated right in the heart of Glen Ellyn, IL.  Our studio offers private and group lessons in Piano and Strings (including guitar).   We are a husband-wife team, with many years of experience teaching on our own in many different settings.  We love it that we now get to teach together!  We are also honored to have a few very talented friends join us to work here at Bellas Artes.

           We believe that learning to play music is not just about acquiring the mastery of an instrument but about enlarging the soul to see beauty and cultivating a virtue and depth of character commensurate with that beauty.  This is a journey that we embarked upon when we were children, because someone believed in us and gave us an opportunity.  And so now in turn, we absolutely love the fact that we are getting to invite others to join us as well in this pilgrimage. Because we view teaching as mentorship, not simply the transferral of information, we place high priority on relationship with our students and their families.  We believe in our students and take great joy in seeing them discover that they can do things they never knew they could do before.

            We hope you feel at home in our studio and decide to join us!
