Vanda Kay Music

Vanda Kay Music was born out of a goofy girl's unlikely dream to be a rock star in a small English town in the 1970s. Fast forward a few decades, and here we are, finally living the dream and hoping to help others, of whatever age persuasion, with their own musical odyssey. We offer private instruction in piano, electric bass, ukulele, music theory; electric bass performance; band coaching; lead sheet notation; all in the metropolitan Chicago area. Lessons are tailored to suit the needs of students, both in length and content. Rates are competitive.


Our Story

Vanda was classically-trained on the piano and cello from a very young age in the UK. After taking a break from music to work as a university lecturer and then as a legal adviser to the UK Government,  she took up the electric guitar, drums and electric bass and eventually found her way back to music via the Old Town School of Folk Music, Columbia College Chicago and Classes on Clark. She now hopes to inspire others to follow their musical bliss.
