3 Year Olds at 11AM on Select Saturdays in October:
We’re looking to start a new Saturday class in October for 3 year olds. The Saturday 10 AM class is open to all babies and kids (a few months old and up – we’re flexible with ages and welcome older siblings anytime). However, a number of our little guys would like to continue building upon some of our songs and activities with a little more musical teaching. We have a few more spaces to fill before it becomes official! Please EMAIL if you’d like to add your name for October (Limited to 8 kids).
Weekday Evening Music?:
Some people have been looking for a later evening class for babies and their families to get to sing music after work hours. I’d love to offer this if there is enough interest, so please let me know.
Thanks for singing with us throughout the summer! Looking forward to getting to know all the new babies and toddlers from the neighborhood this Fall.

|Sign Up for Weekly Classes|
(in person with our handy-dandy drop-box & DROP IN envelopes, or pay with a card):
Attention! We have a new, easy drop-in system! If you are dropping in, you can pay your $15 rate at the beginning or end of class. Because I’m often doling out stickers or otherwise busy with the bubs, I have created some new DROP-IN ENVELOPES for you to leave payment in our cash drop-box. Just fill out the envelope info, insert your exact payment (in cash), and drop your payment into the slot. Our payment drop-box is on the wall by the bathroom. Cards will also now be accepted through our reader, in-person, with me, Coco if you don’t mind the wait!
Sign up Payments
(in person, cash or check, with SIGN UP envelope or online via your emailed invoice):
If you are signing up for the month, we prefer payments online once your spot has been confirmed via email (please email email@example.com with sign up requests). We love this method, as your payment registers directly into our system, which tracks attendance, makeup credits and payments in one place. If you would like to pay in person, you can also fill out a sign up form at class, and we can manually input this as well. Free floatin’ cash will not be accepted!
Instrument Rentals, Philadelphia
3 Month or 10 Month Trial Discounts
Cello, Violin, Upright Bass, Guitar, and more
Multiple sizes (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 etc.)
Serving Philly Music Lessons students & the Philly/MainLine Area
Fishtown, Northern Liberties, East Kensington, Port Richmond
We have rentals! Some instruments can be hard to get your hands on (upright bass in particular). Also, many kid beginners will eventually outgrow their instrument (this is common with guitar, violin, or cello students, for example). Our rentals allow students to practice and learn on instruments of various sizes. Rentals are the first step many families take when beginning lessons. Its also a bridge if families are considering making a larger instrument investment at some point. Rentals are longer term solution as well – your instrument rental can be included in your lesson packages throughout the year. Many students who use this approach may opt for a rent-to-own option. Come check out what we have in stock at our Fishtown studio! We can make orders for instruments we don’t already have in-house.
Aside from our students, we also service the Philadelphia community at large. Our instrument rentals in Philadelphia are a local option for acquiring school band instruments in the Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Port Richmond, and East Kensington neighborhoods. Contact us to learn more about pricing and instrument types. We also rent amps and other equipment for your instrument needs.
Instrument Rental Example:
3 months up front at the trial rental discounted rate (varying rates depending on instrument)
After the first 3 months, you can continue on a monthly basis, or purchase the instrument at 50% off the list price. Your rental payments will go toward the purchase of the instrument.
