Home > What We Do


Our motto, constantia per artis musicæ peritiam, means “strength of mind through musicianship” in Latin and serves as a summary of our mission statement. At Sato Music Studios LLC, we firmly believe in a complete, well-rounded musical education that reaches far beyond basic note-reading skills. Fundamentals are extremely important, but they mean very little if there is a lack of understanding and appreciation. It is for this reason that we incorporate a combination of repertoire, technique, theory, and history into our instruction. The life skills that can be gained through music lessons are well-documented, and for good reason.

Please see below for general information on private lessons and group classes. If you are interested in these or have any questions, call us at (708) 688-9555 or contact us by following this link.


Private Lessons

Currently, we offer weekly 30- and 60-minute private instruction in all levels of piano and voice in a comfortable setting. In this format, teachers can tailor their instruction to each student’s individual pace and needs. Our private students are encouraged to perform in our semiannual recitals.

Please contact us for up-to-date openings and lesson fee information.
