Private after school music lessons are taught at The Philadelphia School by Philadelphia-area musicians. Instruction is currently being offered in cello, guitar, piano, recorder, percussion, violin, and voice. Nearly half of our students study music after school at TPS.


Students have the opportunity to play in an instrumental ensemble. In 2014-2014, we are offering recorder, percussion, and string ensembles. The program holds several recitals throughout the school year; all students, regardless of whether they take music lessons at The Philadelphia School or outside of school, may perform in these recitals. There are also two Middle School vocal ensembles: the sixth grade treble choir and Measure for Measure, an a cappella group of seventh and eighth graders. Ensemble groups perform at neighborhood events, such as the Fitler Square Fair; the string and a cappella ensembles also perform annually at a local assisted living residence.

Student musicians are encouraged to be accompanists at student choral concerts and dramatic performances.
