About Traveling Musician

Music Lessons for the Philadelphia Suburbs

A Proven Method of Music Study

Our mission is to encourage the love of music while helping our students become well-rounded musicians. Whether you are looking for a hobby or a future career, our small family of high quality instructors can help you reach your goals. Our dedicated teachers use a tried and true system of music education developed and implemented by our founders for over 20 years. Our results speak for themselves. Traveling Musician students grow to become leaders in the music industry, high achievers in our district, regional, and state band, choir, and orchestras, and are valued contributors to our local music community.

A Customized Approach to Music Education

Traveling Musician teachers use our own 7-point system of music education to ensure a well-rounded and organized method. We use custom materials and each student receives a lesson tailored to their own unique style and learning needs. Rather than using a single, limited existing method, we have combined our knowledge of the popular music education methods such as Suzuki, Kodaly, Orff, Gordon, Dalcroze, and instrument-specific methods with our studies of music, psychology, and pedagogy to create our superior school of learning.

Educational Benefits

Music Lessons in your Home
In the safety and convenience of your home, the instrument, materials, and books are ready and waiting and the time you pay for is used to its full potential.

✦Any lesson without the materials needed is a lesson wasted. It is very easy to forget books at home in the rush of getting out the door.

✦Valuable lesson time isn’t eaten up by unpacking and repacking the instrument. This can be about ten minutes of lesson time you are paying for that is being wasted.

✦Instruments are delicate and respond poorly to being tossed around in the car and even to changes in humidity and temperature. Half the lesson on location is wasted when an instrument gets knocked out tune in transit and the teacher has to fix it.

✦Teachers can help their students practice more efficiently when they understand how and where the student is practicing at home. There are some bad habits that cannot be corrected until the teacher works with the student in their regular practice space.

✦Students are more comfortable expressing themselves in a familiar environment. When they know that strangers are able to hear everything they do, they are less likely to take musical risks.

✦A controlled home environment is less likely to be noisy or distracting to the student.
