If you are looking for fun, educational, and inspiring acoustic or electric guitar lessons from top-notch teachers in Gladwyne, you don’t have to look any further. The Main Line School of Music and Dance started out in 1988 as a guitar school and since that time we have taught thousands of students of all ages and levels how to play acoustic and electric guitar.


“We have decades of experience, in both the music and dance schools, at Main Line; 2 kids, 3 musical instruments. I am not sure there is a family at the school who has logged more hours at the Ardmore location. The instructors are of outstanding quality; certainly regional, and some with national and international credentials. What is nice is that most instructors have been teaching at Main Line for years; they ‘get it’; the kids have achieved success at Main Line that permeates their non music and dance lives. The Main Line administration is accommodating and reasonable. Challenges always emerge, and we have been uniformly satisfied with mutually agreed upon results. Main Line has figured out the recipe to have music and dance education a natural fit into everyone’s lives. Main Line is as good as it gets.” (Parents of Andrew and Maeve)
