Flute Lessons

I started my flute lesson with Ms. Emily Stewart at PML in February 2020. I had a chance to have about a month of in-person lessons before we switched to Skype due to the pandemic. I am very happy with the quality of the lessons and the quick response of the PML team to my inquiries. Highly recommended, even for adults who are looking to pick up a new instrument!

Saxophone Lessons

My saxophone teacher has been one of the best experiences I've ever had with learning. Very patient but also very instructive and inspirational. Very knowledgeable about both the little things and the larger view. Always has great exercises for me to work on and feel myself grow as a musician. Philly Music Lessons has also been very helpful in any way possible in setting up my lessons with David. Thanks to everybody for this experience, its very much recommended.

Hugh W.

Saxophone & Clarinet

From beginners to advanced, we will teach the fundamentals of playing woodwind instruments, including proper breath control, tone and technique. Advanced students can learn jazz theory, dixie land melodies, and more in depth orchestral pieces.


Learn how to read music, proper breathing technique and the standard repertoire, all while gaining the skills necessary to perform in an orchestra or ensemble.
