♫ My 10-year-old daughter has been taking flute lessons at Bella Angel for the past 2 years. We've had nothing but positive experiences at the scool. Her teacher, Herman Reyes, is wonderful and can always keep up with her high energy level. I enjoy hearing her progress as I wait in the comfortable waiting area and it's easy to find parking!

♫ My son has learned a lot from Bella Angel Music and I would recommend them for children or adults interested in learning how to play an instrument. Lucy K., Chicago, IL
♫ I have been studying the flute with Herman Reyes at Bella Angel Music. As an adult student, I enjoy Herman’s style of teaching. He has a relaxed yet encouraging style and he allows me to work at my own pace. I really appreciate his vast knowledge of music history and various music styles. I feel I have greatly improved my playing under his teaching. I also enjoy the challenge of being able to participate in the bi-annual recitals at Bella Angel Music. I feel this is a great learning experience being able to perform in front of a live audience.

♫ I always wanted music to be more than just something I could listen to. I wanted to play it, to read it, to feel it. Bella Angel Music has given me just that, something to fall back when nothing else is going well: music. It's one of the decisions I will never regret. Not only are the prices affordable and the times flexible, but this is the perfect environment for learning because of its talented, welcoming, and friendly staff. Thanks, Bella Angel Music. Laura C., Chicago, IL
♫ I have learned so much in my lessons and thoroughly enjoy what I refer to as the fastest hour of the week! Kathie W., Elmwood Park, IL
♫ Through Herman's encouragement and patient teaching style, my daughter Emily has felt more confident to perform in front of people. The things she learned from Herman regarding playing style and rhythm has helped her during her competitions. She also learned how to read bass clef from Herman, which has greatly helped her read and understand music in her school band. Gerry Z., Franklin Park, IL

♫ My daughter, Victoria, takes piano lessons from Ellen. She is an excellent and gifted teacher and encourages her. We have been very pleased with the lessons and with the progress Victoria is making. Best of all, Victoria's love of piano playing and music in general continues to grow. I highly recommend Bella Angel. Lorraine S., Elmwood Park, IL
♫ My teenage daughter has been with Ellen, her voice teacher, for six months now, and my husband and I have noticed a marked improvement in her singing. She had her first recital last week, and was amazed to hear how well she sang! Ellen has taught her many new things she has never learned with her previous voice teacher. My daughter records every lesson, per Ellen's request, and practices everyday with it--it's like she is taking lessons everyday! I look forward to seeing my daughter grow vocally with Ellen's help and expertise. I highly recommend Bella Angel Music!

♫ My 11 year old daughter Arianna has been going to Bella Angel for several months now. She takes voice lessons with Ellen. My daughter & I absolutely love Ellen! She plays the piano amazingly! Ellen always has Arianna's best interest in mind. She chooses the best songs for her & is always praising how great my daughter sings :) She's so motivating! We live an hour away from her studio & I wouldn't go anywhere else! It's totally worth the drive. They have several recitals throughout the year where her students can showcase what they've learned. I can't wait for my daughters first recital! Bella Angel Music is the perfect studio! I Promise you won't be disappointed!!! 5 stars! Van G., Chicago, IL
♫ I always enjoy watching young people perform and excel. Music allows them to perform and express themselves. I also believe it helps to instill self-confidence in these students of music. Ellen and her staff help to develop these students into being all that they can be! Bob B,, River Grove, IL
♫ Our daughter Serafina has been taking piano lessons at Bella Angel Music for about a year now. She really enjoys both the class and the teachers. The teachers excel at guiding Serafina during class, and then explaining afterward what they did in class,and what they expect her to do for the next lesson.
I would highly recommend Bella Angel Music to anyone looking to take music or singing lessons. The teachers are great, and the students seem to learn a lot and improve their music skills, regardless of how much experience they've had.

♫ I have had the opportunity to work with Ellen Bartolozzi for the past 6 years. I first met Ellen in her role as Music Director at St. Cyprian Church in River Grove IL., where we worked together on yearly Lenten missions and programs. Currently, Ellen is one of my soloists for memorials and my substitute pianist for Masses at St. Celestine's Church in Elmwood Park, IL. She has a lovely voice and she plays the piano with such feeling and emotion. Ellen is a very conscientious person who takes her job very seriously and it is a pleasure working with her. This is why I have referred many people to Bella Angel Music for music lessons. Craig Kamptner, Music Director at St. Celestine Church, Elmwood Park, IL
♫ I always look forward to my piano lessons each week. I began taking piano lessons with no expectations as a 29 year old, as I thought I may be too old to become any good at it. But thanks to the phenomenal teachers that Bella Angel Music has, I can proudly call myself a pianist. My hand-eye coordination has improved considerably, I am able to focus better every day no matter what I am doing, I am a lot more patient and my creativity has blossomed. All because I took a chance on learning how to play piano. This is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Thank you, Bella Angel Music, for creating such a professional, supportive and wonderful place for me to learn what I thought was impossible, while helping me grow as a person! Maggie T., Chicago, IL
♫ The teachers and owners really make an effort to make their students feel like they are a part of a family. They are all very encouraging, and truly believe in the power of music, and the value that it offers. I am very happy with my time there, and look forward to continuing my musical studies with them.
