Guided by Wayne Art Center’s mission to foster a sense of community for arts education and appreciation, Wayne Art Center welcomes children and adults whether they are interested in advancing their musical education or exploring an instrument for the first time.
We work to carefully match students with the best-fit faculty member, who will design a program of music study tailored to each child’s needs. Because Wayne Art Center offers a larger music faculty than any other music school in the area, we can assure students they will be placed with the perfect teacher. We encourage all parents to schedule a complimentary first lesson so that families can feel comfortable with the student-teacher relationship.
Wayne Art Center provides individual lessons in piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, flute, oboe, and voice for students to learn to read music from the very first lesson.
Please call 610-688-3553 to arrange an introductory lesson. To learn more about our faculty visit wayneart.org/music.
Student recitals are held three to four times each year, and students at all levels are encouraged to participate. The Music School at Wayne Art Center also offers an advanced certificate piano recital for students who qualify, as well as a summer string orchestra open to beginner through advanced students.
Our music instructors come from prestigious musical backgrounds, having studied at the Curtis Institute of Music, The Cleveland Institute, Julliard School of Music, and Temple University, among other institutions. Our teachers are also performers; they continue to work with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Philly Pops, and additional prominent classical music groups.
Current yearly Wayne Art Center membership is required to enroll in music lessons. Our membership year runs from September 1st – August 31st. Memberships must be purchased at the front desk prior to the first lesson. Memberships are tax-deductible and ensure that Wayne Art Center can continue to provide the highest quality arts education on the Main Line.
