“Changing lives through a life-long continuum of music.”

The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts is a place where lives are truly transformed through the power of the arts.  Whether you are interested in playing woodwinds, brass, strings, vocals and percussive instruments, a wide array of performance and educational opportunities await you through the Music Education program.

It offers children and adults a musical education through a broad program of private instruction, ensembles, workshops and concerts.  The strength of the program offerings is the mentoring component which involves an opportunity for younger musicians to work with season practicing professional artists.  Music is a part of everybody’s life and to begin to perform and understand it adds an extra dimension that gives the student a powerful means of self-expression, and a sense of worth and responsibility.

Music education is a program that coordinates resources to provide quality music instruction for young people and adults throughout Greater Philadelphia Delaware Valley region.  Gives young musicians a Summer Jazz Camp full of music training in challenging and creative environment where learning, focus, and discipline are cultivated.  Provides music education programming in areas of the City where few or no music education exit.

We partner with charter and public schools, as well as community centers to bring instrumental music instruction to young people in the communities where they live and learn.

Visiting artists, master classes and professional coaching all enhance the learning experience for teachers and students alike.
