Comprehensive Philly music lessons for all ages

Zach Zaitlin believes that there's a musician in every one of us -- that creating and sharing music is a fundamental human birthright. It's only a matter of structuring and sequencing music instruction mindfully and knowledgeably to ensure that the musician within each student is given the chance to blossom.


At Zach Zaitlin Piano Studio, instead of analyzing music from the outside in, students learn to understand music from the inside out. They learn to "speak" and think the language of music so that they can truly make music their own, and not always be dependent upon a teacher, video, or page in a book. Whether a 4-year-old beginner or a 44-year-old adult student returning to the piano after decades away, Zach guides each student, with patience and a sense of humor, to acquire the skills they'll need to thrive in whatever musical path they choose -- joyfully, for a lifetime.

What Zach's students say

Zach Zaitlin is an incredible piano instructor...Our son loved going each week."

Molly, mother of 8-year-old student

"I'm an adult returning to the piano after a long absence and Zach was exactly the piano teacher I needed -- he kept me on target, taught me things I hadn't realized I needed to know, was extraordinarily patient and always pushed me to do my best."

Marty, adult student

“Zach is a natural teacher. He is kind, patient, creative, caring, and balanced. What stands out to me is his encouragement, connection with the kids and his genuine care for their success as learners.”

Cathlyn, mother of two students and veteran elementary school teacher
