Get Started with Music Lessons Today!

Have your instrument repaired, your way. 

Instrument repair today is similar to going into a mechanic to get a car repaired.  You really wanted an oil change then come out with a $500 quote with several things wrong with your car.  

At Chris K Music, we inspect each instrument thoroughly and test it to make sure it is properly working (or modified to work properly).   We charge a small fee for each instrument ($30-$60 depending on size of instrument) then add repairs “ala-carte” until the instrument is fixed.  If you want a simple tenon replaced, screw tightened, or valve removed, then no problem.   

We repair most brass and wind instruments,  string instruments, guitars, pianos (regular and electric) and drums.  We also service percussion instruments including timpani.   On-site service for band programs is also available.    We also match the price

We currently don’t service amplifiers, sound speakers/systems or organs at this time.

What our families and students say about music lessons @ Chris K Music. 

“Chris has the bases covered- no matter the learning level, no matter the musical style, no matter the student’s learning style- flexibility to tailor-make music come alive is Chris’ forte. “

Brent Budd
Pastor First Christian Church in Arcola, IL

“Chris was instrumental in developing our son Blake with a well rounded drummer skill set. At a young age he was capable of being utilized by our worship pastor and was able to be flexible enough to learn to play with a metronome. Chris, we can’t thank you enough!!”

Carolyn Yoder
Worship Leader and associate pastor at vineyard church in sullivan, il. 

“Chris is an amazing teacher of music. He is also a great roll model of a Godly man. Chris has been a great influence on my son. He has taught him a lot about drumming and has boosted his self esteem. Chris has very flexible hours for taking lessons. “

Melissa Caywood

“Can’t say enough about Chris! He has helped greatly with both our sons on drumming and is extremely flexible with busy schedules!!”

Lissa Scocy

Our son has been taking drum lessons from Chris since he was 5. By age 10 he was the lead drummer for our church band. Chris has gone above and beyond for our son many times, from setting up a drum kit in our home to challenging him to write music and play pieces he never thought he could play. Chris is a kind, caring instructor that is excellent at helping kids discover and develop their musical talents.

Shad Huddleston

“My kids have been coming here for at least a year! My 10 year old plays the Piano and my 8 year old plays the guitar! My kids love him and I think it’s worth every penny!!! And I’m pretty picky .  I can’t wait for my almost 4 year old starts:) “
