A Touch of Classical Plus, Inc. - Calderon Music Studio

“Teaching is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens.” – Shinichi Suzuki

Welcome to A Touch of Classical Plus, where we introduce music education by motivating students to discover their hidden abilities while developing confidence through the study of violin, viola, cello, piano, chamber ensemble, and early childhood music instruction.

Music lessons are for everyone, regardless of age regardless of socioeconomic background. Classes are infused with theory and ear training, online via Zoom or in person.  

Our focus is on two areas:

Music Education & Student Performances

  • Private Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello

  • Suzuki Groups

  • Chamber Ensemble

  • Music programs for daycare and preschool age students

  • In-school programming for before-, during, and after-school programs

  • Extracurricular music activities and programs for youth organizations and homeschool

  • Audition prep

  • Recitals, competitions, performance opportunities, and talent shows for students

  • Workshops and masterclasses
  • Opportunities for student musicians to perform at nursing homes, church events, and private parties


Lessons and group classes are held via Zoom or in-person in one of two locations
South Shore: 7204 S. Ridgeland Ave, Chicago, 60649
