Hyde Park School of Music (HPSM) is an Illinois-based nonprofit educational institution committed to providing children and adults with the opportunity to improve their quality of living through the gift of music. Our mission is to create a community based on the musical history and cultural richness of the South Side of Chicago.

Hyde Park School of Music presently provides subsidized private lessons in the homes of our clients. Instruction is tailored to the individual student but with an emphasis on improvisation and playing popular songs, both past and present. We provide instruction in guitar, voice, piano, bass, percussion and audio production with concentration in the musical genres of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop and House.
