In light of the statewide stay-at-home directive by Governor Tom Wolf and the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff, our office and programs will be closed until April 30th. Please check back for updates. For our POP families, please visit the resource section in our POP family portal for instructional videos made by our POP TA’s for your students to continue learning and practicing at home during this time.


Play On Philly’s rigorous instrumental curriculum, developed in collaboration with teaching artists, sets the standards high for what a POP student can achieve.

Students learn, practice and refine their technical and musical skills on their instrument in order to play together in their ensembles. POP pairs its instrumental curriculum with high behavior and social expectations, also called citizenship. Through our program, students are encouraged to model behavior which exemplifies kindness, empathy and understanding.

If you’re curious about what the results sound like, request a site visit or come to an upcoming event!

Meet Sophia, Lori, and Andres, just a few of the special people who inspire us to reach more children with intensive music education programs from Play On Philly.
