Group Music Classes

Learning music in a group setting can be motivating and fun for young or beginner students. Group classes provide an opportunity to try out an instrument and learn about basic musical concepts before starting private lessons. 

Due to COVID-19, please check back at a later time when we can safely open for group classes again. 

Jazz Performance Program

Virtual and In-person Jazz Ensemble options are available. Enrollment is being accepted for February--June, 2021. Don’t miss out on this unique Ensemble program that is open to all instruments, including non-traditional jazz instruments. Please call 215-340-7979.

Virtual and in-person performance opportunities are being planned for Spring 2021!

Virtual Composer's Forum Class

This unique virtual program invites students of all ages to join in a weekly Zoom class to learn about composing, arranging, and orchestrating, together. If you have ever wanted to write your own music this class is for you! 


The class meets every Monday evening from 7-8pm. Enrollment is accepted on an ongoing basis.


A Hybrid schedule model has been planned for February through June of 2021. We have based our school year calendar around Holidays. We intend to offer Virtual learning weeks after major Holidays due to the high likelihood that people will gather over the holiday and Covid cases may subsequently rise. Some instructors have opted to remain fully virtual and families are able to request to remain fully virtual as well. Please call 215.340.7979 to discuss all options with a Conservatory Staff Member.
