Hi. I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago, although I now live in the NW 'burbs. I realize this isn't the name of a specific store, but have you checked the yellow pages for "Music Instruction?" I have an old phone book from 2004, and it listed places like www.burnsmusic.com and others...If one instructor doesn't teach a particular instrument, like drums, just ask if they can recommend someone who does....Most musicians network together...12469
The Old Town School of Music in Chicago offers classes for children and some are on percussion instruments. They have two locations one in Lincoln Park on Armatage and the other in Lincoln Square on North Lincoln Ave.12467
I don't know where you live but a co-worker of mine had her son taking lessons on the south side of Chicago and he is playing the drums in her church. So it is a good form of discipline for him which would not be hard because he loves playing.12466
My brother is in Chicago and I pinged him - all of his kids play music. He uses a lessons company called TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com). They are a national company and certify all their instructors. Very professional. Hope this helps.12465
Hey , the Old town School of folk Music is a great resource. They have great drumming teachers and the Lincoln Square neighborhood is great to explore with a 5 year old.My daughter took music lessons there and now she plays in her school band(flute) Good Luck12464
