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!

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!

Violin Lessons

I am an adult learner, studying the violin for about 4 years with Stef Emery. Stef is a patient and encouraging teacher, full of enthusiasm for your progress. She understands the challenges for an adult learner, and is full of advice as to how to get the most out of your available practice time, as well as practical solutions for progressing with a piece. The PML operation is efficient, flexible and accommodating, and the transition to online learning through the last year was surprisingly effective.


Voice Lessons

I took weekly voice lessons here for about a year. Great facility and instructors, easy online portal for scheduling and tracking. Highly recommended!

Guitar Lessons

As someone who used to play music regularly when I was younger, Philly Music Lessons has been a great way for me to get back to playing the guitar and reconnect with the music I love. Great teachers and flexible schedules and a convenient location.

Drum Lessons

Amazing experience with an amazing instructor! I have zero musical background and decided I wanted to take up a new hobby and take drum lessons! Tom Cullen is THE MAN! He is incredibly helpful and easy to understand, patient, and fun to learn from. The studio itself is very welcoming and comfortable as well. I highly highly suggest Philly Music Lessons and especially Tom Cullen as a top tier instructor and studio for all your needs!

Piano Lessons

My daughter started piano lessons when she was 3 years old and Teacher Rick was extremely patient with her even with her short attention span. Even during this difficult time with the pandemic, Philly Music Lessons took all the cautions seriously and quickly turned around to virtual lessons which we had no problem with and the transition was great. I would highly recommend to parents who would like to start music lessons for their kids!

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.

Guitar Lessons

Joe is a fantastic guitar teacher. My son and husband both take lessons from him, and we see him at our house every week. No matter what, he is always cheerful and kind. He is one of my favorite people in Philadelphia. He single handedly eased our transition to Philly from Seattle and we are so grateful. He is a true gem, not only as a teacher and musician, but as a person. He is flexible, creative, hard-working--an all around standout.

Violin Lessons

There's so much I can say about Philly music lessons but I'll just sum it up too "they are the best''. My daughter started violin lessons in October of 2016 and lovesss it. She had the privilege of being taught by not just one instructor but two! Eunice & then Freddy, and they are just incredible. . . Patient & kind but also Stern when they need to be. You want to introduce your child to music, this is the place to go . . . I recommend them to all my friends & family .

Great teachers with easy going personalities. They are very encouraging and knowledgeable. I had a fantastic experience and will continue to go there.

Voice Lessons

My experience signing up for and taking singing lessons at Philly Music Lessons was great all around. The school paired me up with a teacher promptly based on my needs, and it was easy to correspond with the school regarding scheduling, billing, etc. My lessons with Marcelle were also great. As an adult who has never taken singing lessons before, Marcelle made me feel comfortable, our lessons were always engaging and informative, and I made noticeable progress in the four months together.

Voice Lessons

I have been greatly enjoying my singing lessons! We had to switch to online lessons, but it was an easy transition to make and it is working out better than expected. Melanie is a fantastic voice instructor and I feel like I've gotten a lot out of the experience.
