What our students are saying

Guitar & Banjo Lessons

I started taking lessons here because I wanted to pick up a new hobby and continue learning music even after school. My instructor Phil was super knowledgeable and very patient with me every lesson I had. If you’re looking for a great guitar/banjo instructor, definitely ask for Phil! The staff at Philly Music Lessons are very responsive and accommodating when scheduling lessons. They really strive to make this a great place to learn and love your instrument!

Ukulele Lessons

Overall, great experience with Philly Music Lessons. I had my lessons at the South Philly studio, which was very convenient for me since I lived only 5 mins away. All lessons are coordinated electronically, and it was for the most part easy to communicate via email. My ukulele teacher , Sean was also very attentive and explained things in depth and well.

Ukulele Lessons

My daughter is taking weekly lessons with Philly Music Lessons and she absolutely loves it. Her instrument of choice is the ukulele and I really thought I was going to have a hard time finding someone to teach her this instrument. Her instructor, Collin, is very knowledgeable and patient. The ease to sign up for classes and pay was perfect. Emailed questions are answered very quickly, the facility itself is fun and clean. I would recommend Philly Music Lessons to anyone!

The Banjo is a great fingerpicking instrument.  Our teachers will get both hands working together quickly to get that classic banjo sound!


The Ukulele is a fantastic instrument, not just for kids, but for students of all ages. Our lessons will teach you the fundamentals of any string instrument, while exploring styles and strumming patterns unique to the ukulele.
