Teachers at the Old Town School

Victor Figueroa


Classical, Rock, Pop

Born in Chicago, Illinois, and lived most of his life in the Lincoln Square area. Victor has been playing the piano since he was 10 years old. In high school he attended Amundsen High School, and then matriculated into Harold Washington College where he studied Engineering and Music and graduated in 2018 with an Associates in Science. He is currently attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to get his B.A. in Music with an emphasis in piano performance.

Victor believes that the best way to learn piano is to enjoy what you are playing. His approach to teaching is learning how to read music and creating a fundamental understanding of basic music theory and consistent practice. In addition to playing the piano, Victor enjoys creating beats at the school for other students to use for different music genres and for other artists.
