Creative Arts

The Creative Arts Department at the West Suburban YMCA fosters joy and creativity through holistic artistic instruction within a brave space, where all levels and ages are welcome to explore without fear of making mistakes.


Learning a new instrument can improve your memory, raise your grades, and help to reduce stress! Whether you are a 3rd grader learning an instrument for the first time or a parent picking up their clarinet after 10+ years, our private lessons are the best way to make music a regular part of your day. Lessons are available for piano, guitar (acoustic and electric), bass guitar, ukulele, and voice. 

For more information about private music lessons, please contact Kim Benzan at
