Upcoming Events! Recitals

Spring Coffee House Recital May 30th
With Student Performances in Cello, Violin, Piano, and Guitar
At Philly Music Lessons, Fishtown

piano recitalThis weekend, we will be holding a salon-style recital at our space in Fishtown. Families and friends will gather starting at 3PM to support students of all ages and skill levels (some performing for the first time!). Guests can enjoy wine, cheese, and music during 3 sections of performances. This recital has given students of guitar, violin, cello, and piano the chance to dedicate themselves to a single piece of music, polishing it to performance quality. We applaud them for their work ahead of time and also look forward to hearing it all on Saturday.

Recitals are important milestones, and so we always try to document these events. Each performance is filmed for students and families to enjoy, share, and reflect upon afterwards. By now some of our students have a few recitals under their belts and will surely enjoy looking back!

Stay tuned for this Spring’s 2015 Coffee House Recital Highlights and for updates on the 2015 Fall Recital, which will take place at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square in Center City, Philadelphia. Cheers, and good luck to our students!

Musical Gifts! For Mom

Mother’s Day Packages

Includes a Free Trial Lesson for Mom!
All Occasions and Birthdays
Piano, Voice, Guitar, Drums, Violin, and more

Piano Lessons - Musical GiftsIf you’re going for a truly unique and lasting gift for Mother’s Day, music lessons are the perfect surprise for a music lover. Pair these lessons with concert tix, new guitar strings, or a piano tuning, and you’ll have made your musical momma’s dreams come true. We hand-print our gift certificates with silver ink on heavy card stock. Please call (610)451-7883 to purchase gift certificates, packages of lessons, or schedule a single trial lesson with us.

Gift Certificates can be arranged for as many lessons as you’d like. Choose a single trial lesson or go in for the real deal and get Mom a month or season’s worth of lessons (10% off seasonal packages). When you purchase a gift certificate, we send it to you (or the recipient) in the mail. You can also pick up your gift certificates at our studio in Fishtown.

Once purchased, how are lessons scheduled? 
Once Mom receives her gift certificate, she can call us to schedule lessons (in-home or at our Fishtown studio) based on her availability. Once availability is worked out, we find out Mom’s interests, goals, and skill level. Then, we can set her up with the right teacher.

Discounts, Trial Lessons and Packages
We offer trial lessons at half-price. Typically, we include one half-priced trial lesson with gift packages. However, in honor of all the Moms out there, we’re including a trial lesson for FREE for Mother’s Day! (This applies to Father’s Day lessons too if you’re ahead of the game for Dad).

Not sure what kind of lessons you’d like to gift?
That’s okay – we can find out from Mom how she’d like to use her lessons. But if you think she’d like to be surprised, drums and piano are often good instruments for beginners at any age. They provide an excellent musical foundation.
