Founded in 1908, Settlement Music School began as the music program of the College Settlement in Philadelphia’s Southwark section offering services to newly arrived immigrants in the community. The music program grew rapidly from volunteers offering piano lessons for a nickel to a full program of instruction in all musical instruments taught by professionals, including several members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. By 1914, Settlement was incorporated as an independent community school of the arts. The current Mary Louise Curtis Branch building was built in 1917. In the 1940s and ‘50s, Settlement experimented with remote satellite and branch locations, and by 1960 had established Germantown and Northeast (later the Kardon-Northeast) branches. In the 1970’s, Settlement undertook an ambitious program of education and therapy in music and dance for disabled children and adults, and in the mid-1980’s incorporated the Kardon Institute as a separate, allied institution. Kardon later spun off into an independent organization, and upon the Institute’s closing in 2014, Settlement launched its Kardon Center for Arts Therapy. In the late 1980’s Settlement merged with the Jenkintown Music School to create a fourth branch (which moved to a brand new facility in 2011 to become the Willow Grove Branch) and founded a fifth branch in the Wynnefield neighborhood of West Philadelphia. In 2002, Settlement extended its services to students in Camden, New Jersey.

We are proud to salute Music Education Pathways and the many partnerships that extend Settlement Music School’s reach into communities throughout Greater Philadelphia.
These programs provide instruments, music instruction, and skills that last a lifetime. Barrie Trimingham and David Pierson
The 109th Anniversary Gala celebrates Settlement’s presence in familiar and unexpected places across six branch locations and numerous community partnerships throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. We are pleased to include the following list of Settlement’s current community partnerships. While the list is not exhaustive and continually grows, you will see a vast array of partnerships that range from early childhood programming to adult learning, arts therapy, and much more. We are so proud of this collaborative work, and we would like to thank Settlement volunteer Steve Wadden for compiling these listings. Allen’s Lane Art Center Allen’s Lane is a community art center located in Mount Airy, PA. Founded in 1953, the center provides a variety of workshops for children and adults alike, as well as dance classes, art displays, and live theatre performances. From 2013-2017, Allen’s Lane has curated local artist exhibitions at Settlement’s Germantown Branch, providing new exhibits every 4-6 weeks. Artist receptions are scheduled to coincide with student recitals so that the artists can listen to student performances and students can learn more about the pieces on display. This partnership has facilitated mutual artistic exchange, where Settlement families can enjoy local art and artists can gain exposure to new audiences, creating a strong connection between the Settlement and Allen’s Lane communities. One of Settlement’s string trios performed at 2016’s “Night of the Arts,” Allen’s Lane’s annual spring gala.
Barber National Institute Founded in 1952, the Barber National Institute is a day program for children and adults with intellectual disabilities or behavioral health challenges that serves more than 4,300 individuals each year. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy partners with Barber to provide six weeks of dance/movement therapy group sessions throughout the year. These classes enhance the clients’ daily experience at the Institute by providing a group setting for self-expression and physical activity. The BELL Academy of the National Federation of the Blind The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is a national service organization that advocates on behalf of the visually impaired and offers vital social support to blind individuals who are pursuing an independent, nonrestricted lifestyle. Each summer, the Pennsylvania affiliate of the NFB runs the BELL (Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning) Academy for blind and low-vision children between the ages of 4 and 12. This program helps children develop self-assurance, Braille reading abilities, and other non-visual skills through direct instruction and engaging activities. In July 2016, with funding from the Alfred B. Millet Fund of BNY Mellon MidAtlantic Charitable Trusts, Settlement faculty taught daily music classes at the BELL Academy. This collaboration has created new avenues of artistic expression for visually impaired students and helped them to develop their knowledge of music and musical instruments.
Carousel House Carousel House is a year-round program sponsored by the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department that is dedicated to providing socialization, recreational, and educational services for adults with intellectual disabilities. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy provides weekly music therapy classes between the months of October and May. With these classes, Settlement contributes to Carousel’s mission of enriching the lives of intellectually disabled individuals by providing an artistic outlet that facilitates personal growth and expression. Community Treatment Solutions Community Treatment Solutions is a nonprofit that seeks to rehabilitate young people who have suffered from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. CTS group homes provide a safe and supportive foundation for treatment interventions. Caretakers highlight clients’ strength and resilience and help them to improve behaviors and acquire essential life skills. Since spring 2016, Settlement’s Camden Branch has collaborated with CTS to provide a weekly Saturday arts program for 30 students from six different group homes. Students ages 13 to 18 spend three hours in theater, dance, bucket drumming, and music therapy/ songwriting classes. These classes create a supportive environment where children can work through emotional trauma using creativity and self-expression. CTS has found that providing clients with arts experiences makes them more likely to successfully reintegrate into their communities after leaving group homes.
Developmental Enterprises Corporation Developmental Enterprises Corporation (DEC) provides high-quality training and rehabilitation services for intellectually disabled adults. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy collaborates with DEC to provide six hours of music and dance/movement therapy every week. One of these therapy groups has recently started meeting at Settlement’s Willow Grove Branch, as part of a DEC community integration initiative. This initiative will strengthen the collaborative bond between Settlement and DEC. Diversified Community Services Diversified Community Services (DCS) provides a wide variety of services to families from low-income backgrounds in the Point Breeze community. Its goal is to improve the community by providing early education and skill-building programs for children and their families. Since 2014, Settlement faculty have collaborated with DCS to offer art instruction for children, infant playshops, preschool workshops, and workshops for teachers and parents. DCS teachers have implemented changes in their teaching styles since attending Settlement’s TTIA (Teacher Training Institute for the Arts) workshops, incorporating creative elements into their usual methods of instruction, and parents have learned to incorporate arts learning into their family lives. The goal of these programs is to educate adult role models about the importance of the arts in personal growth and development so that children will be exposed to artistic education early in life.
Drexel Medical School Classical Music Society The Drexel Medical School Classical Music Society began as a community engagement program for medical students with backgrounds in classical music performance. Settlement’s Germantown Branch has been collaborating with this organization since 2015, hosting a recital for medical students and a group discussion about the relationship between medicine and music, with a focus on the ways in which the two disciplines intersect. This discussion evolved into a music mentorship program, consisting of eight, two-hour sessions over the course of a semester leading up to a performance in the spring. Both Settlement students and medical students participate in the program, creating opportunities for students to develop lasting friendships. Golden Gate 21st Community Learning Center Golden Gate 21st Community Learning Center is a childcare and educational program in New Jersey for infants and children up to 13 years old. Since 2015, faculty from Settlement’s Camden Branch have led group dance classes. This collaboration between the two organizations creates an artistic environment that promotes learning and personal development, allowing Golden Gate students to develop their use of creative expression.
Growth Horizons Founded in 1979, Growth Horizons Inc. is a human services organization for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The primary goal of the organization is to provide workshops and services that help these individuals make choices, set life goals, build relationships, participate in community activities, and attain a generally more autonomous and fulfilling lifestyle. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy provides both group and individual music therapy sessions for their clients. This collaboration promotes individual development and autonomy by encouraging learning and creative growth. Holy Family University Founded in 1954, Holy Family University is one of the foremost Catholic universities in Pennsylvania. Since 2014, Holy Family’s Northeast Philadelphia campus has hosted ten weeks of Saturday Children’s Music Workshop classes each spring. Classes offer introductory musical education for children ages 5-7, and provide an opportunity for parents to instill a love of music in their children at an early age. This collaboration also allows the University to recruit new children for their daycare program.
House at Pooh Corner Founded in 1979, House at Pooh Corner is a preschool and daycare center committed to fostering curiosity, individuality, and compassionate cooperation in young children. For more than 10 years, Settlement’s Germantown Branch has been collaborating with Pooh Corner’s teachers and caretakers to provide early music education for their preschool aged pupils. From September through December, Settlement faculty provide weekly Children’s Music Workshop classes with the goal of sparking an early passion for the arts among the preschoolers. Many of the children who participate in this program go on to study music at the Germantown Branch. The Branch also hosts Pooh Corner’s preschool graduation ceremony at the end of the school year. Independence Library Independence Library is one of 54 branches of the Philadelphia Free Library. Since 1891, the Free Library system has provided millions of Philadelphians with access to a wide variety of written materials in an effort to promote literacy, learning, and intellectual curiosity. Since 2015, Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch has organized spring concerts at the Independence Library featuring performances by the School’s Advanced Study Ensembles. This mutually beneficial exchange allows Settlement students to gain valuable performance experience while providing free public programming for the library. There is also an educational component to the performance, when the students talk to the younger children in the audience about their instruments and the pieces that they are playing.
Katharine Drexel Free Library The Katharine Drexel Free Library, located in Northeast Philadelphia, is one of 54 branches of the Philadelphia Free Library. Since 2014, Settlement faculty have provided singlesession music workshops during the spring and summer months at the Katharine Drexel location. These family-friendly classes are open to young children and parents from the local community and help kids develop an early interest in music. Mamadêlê Productions Mamadêlê Productions is an organization dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of Brazilian music, dance, and martial arts. With performances by Afrofunk, folkloric, and group percussion ensembles, as well as educational programs led by masters of AfroBrazilian music and dance, Mamadele aims to reach out to Brazilian-American communities and teach people about the great artistic traditions of Bahia culture. Settlement’s Kardon-Northeast Branch will host a series of workshops and performances with Mamadêlê artists, funded by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. This collaborative relationship is built upon a shared passion for community-based music education and the celebration of Brazilian music.
Mastery Charter School Mann Campus Mann is part of the Mastery Charter School network, which consists of 22 schools and more than 13,000 students in Camden and Philadelphia. Mastery schools seek to integrate teacher development, school culture, data-driven assessment, and student support into a comprehensive educational method and philosophy. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy provides four hours of music and dance therapy weekly for students with autism in kindergarten through 3rd grade. This collaboration allows the children to build up their confidence, social skills, and emotional intelligence within a fun and creative environment. Mario Lanza Institute The Mario Lanza Institute is a non-profit organization founded as a tribute to the great operatic virtuoso, film star, and former Settlement student from South Philadelphia. The organization has awarded more than 200 scholarships to promising young singers, allowing them to further their training and potentially pursue professional careers in opera. The Mario Lanza Institute also houses a museum featuring photographs, memorabilia, and some of Lanza’s personal items. For 30 years, Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch has hosted the institute’s annual scholarship auditions. This longstanding collaboration is rooted in a shared passion for music education. The Institute’s goal of providing professional training and financial support for talented young singers goes hand-in-hand with Settlement’s mission of providing music education to all, regardless of economic circumstances.
Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia Founded in 1874, the Mendelssohn Club has a long and distinguished history of choral performance and innovation. Mendelssohn has frequently collaborated with the Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as other local music institutions. The Club’s core philosophy emphasizes the importance of risk-taking and adventurousness in the pursuit of a shared, transcendent experience among the audience and the performers. For more than 30 years, Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch has been home to Mendelssohn’s weekly rehearsals. Music Education Pathways Launched in 2013 and funded by the William Penn Foundation, Settlement’s Music Education Pathways (MEP) program provides afterschool musical instruction to several underserved Philadelphia schools. MEP offers band, orchestra, and choir programs at the following institutions: Hardy Williams Elementary, Hardy Williams High, Francis D. Pastorius Elementary, Thomas Holme School, Bache-Martin Elementary School, and Franklin Learning Center. The overarching mission of the program is to create a positive, growth-oriented environment where creativity, teamwork, and persistence are cultivated. At the end of the school year, all six schools come together for a celebratory performance at the Temple Performing Arts Center.
Network for New Music The Network for New Music is an important force in the Philadelphia music community. Its mission is to promote the creation of new and innovative pieces, which is accomplished by commissioning new compositions for performance in venues across the region. For 30 years, the Network has held meetings, rehearsals, and concerts at Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch. This collaboration provides an important service – not just for aspiring composers, but also for musicians and music lovers in general – because the performance of new compositions helps to vitalize and enrich the greater musical community. Northeast Philadelphia Regional Library The Northeast Philadelphia Regional Library is one of 54 branches of the Philadelphia Free Library. Since 2014, the Northeast Philadelphia Regional Library has hosted ensemble performances, percussion workshops, and a jazz lecture series organized by Settlement’s Kardon-Northeast Branch. These family-friendly events are open to children of all ages from the local community and help develop an early interest in music.
Philadelphia Chamber Music Society The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society (PCMS) is committed to providing excellent classical music concerts to the Philadelphia community at a reasonable price. Since 1986, PCMS has presented more than 1,200 concerts featuring world-class performers and offers 50 music education programs annually for young people. For 30 years, PCMS has provided Settlement with multiple masterclasses per year, featuring musicians from its performance series who provide feedback to advanced Settlement students. The masterclasses are free and open to the public. PCMS also holds two to three concerts per year in Presser Recital Hall at Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch. Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society For the past 50 years, the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society has promoted the performance, study, and appreciation of classical guitar music in the Philadelphia area. Musicians with a broad range of experience and expertise are invited to participate in their guitar salons (informal group performances or “jam sessions”) and guitar orchestra. For the past 30 years, Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch has maintained a strong collaborative relationship with the Society. Every month, they use the School to host day-long programming that concludes with a concert, and in April, they host their annual guitar festival with all-day masterclasses and concerts. This collaboration is built upon a shared goal of promoting the performance and appreciation of classical music within the Greater Philadelphia community.
Philadelphia Music Alliance for Youth Established in 2012, the Philadelphia Music Alliance for Youth (PMAY) is a collaborative of organizations in the Philadelphia region dedicated to providing music education and performance opportunities to youth. In addition to Settlement, members include Commonwealth Youthchoirs, The Curtis Institute of Music, The Kimmel Center of the Performing Arts, Musicopia, Philadelphia Boys Choirs & Chorale, Philadelphia Girls Choir, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Philadelphia Sinfonia Association, Philadelphia Youth Orchestra & Tune Up Philly, Play On, Philly, The Primavera Fund, Project 440, The School District of Philadelphia Office of Arts & Academic Enrichment, Sister Cities Girlchoir, and Temple University Music Preparatory Division. The collaborative’s work has included an annual Philadelphia Festival of Young Musicians, a white paper that examines the national landscape of collective impact in arts education, and most recently, the PMAY Artists’ Initiative, a program funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that will identify and support the region’s most committed young musicians from underrepresented communities to ensure they have the skills necessary to excel in conservatory, college, or university as music majors. Philadelphia Orchestra For more than a century, the Philadelphia Orchestra has been one of the premier symphony orchestras in the United States, consistently attracting great musicians and conductors from around the world. During the last two seasons, Settlement has provided a “pre-concert adventure” before Family Concert Series performances. These interactive music education sessions are open to all ticket-holding families. Previous adventures have included holiday singalongs, movie soundtrack exploration, and the Halloween “instrument safari,” where kids could try out a variety of instruments. This collaboration is aimed at sparking an interest in classical music among a whole new generation of concertgoers.
Piffaro: The Renaissance Band Since 1980, Piffaro has been performing faithful recreations of late Medieval and Renaissance music using authentic instrumentation from those periods. With expert knowledge and musicianship, the group promotes the broader appreciation of early European music. For the past 30 years, Settlement has maintained a collaborative relationship with Piffaro. Piffaro uses the facilities at Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch for rehearsals and performances each year, as well as their annual early music festival. This longstanding collaboration promotes music education and the perpetuation of historic musical traditions. Retirement Communities Settlement’s Advanced Study Program regularly performs at retirement communities throughout the region, such as Dunwoody Village, the Quadrangle, and The Hill at Whitemarsh. The Advanced Study Program is one of Philadelphia’s premiere and most competitive pre-professional music programs. It provides comprehensive scholarship-based preparatory training to motivated, advanced-level high school students. These students receive teaching and coaching from the most prominent artist-teachers in the Philadelphia region. Performances at retirement communities provide valuable performance experience for the students and high-quality musical entertainment for residents.
Rhawnhurst Turning Point Rhawnhurst Turning Point is a joint non-profit venture created by the Rhawnhurst Presbyterian and Redemption Lutheran Churches. Since 2011, this community center has provided vital extracurricular activities and a safe, supportive environment for 6th-12th grade students from more than 25 schools in the Philadelphia area. Regular activities include art classes, homework help, and community service missions. Faculty from Settlement’s KardonNortheast Branch have provided group guitar and percussion workshops since 2016. This collaboration is built upon a shared commitment to fostering personal growth and enriching the lives of young people. Ronald McDonald House For 35 years, Ronald McDonald House has provided housing to the families of seriously ill children at little to no cost. The organization ensures that families are able to stay together when a sick child is receiving long-term medical treatment at a facility that is far from home. The very first Ronald McDonald House was established in Philadelphia, and they have since spread across the United States and even into other parts of the world. Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy provides weekly music therapy and art studio sessions at two Ronald McDonald Houses in the city. The therapists help develop relationships between families at the houses and provide stress reduction for severely ill or injured children and their loved ones. This collaboration was founded on a belief in the healing power of the arts.
South Philly Jam The South Philly Jam is a weekly jam session open to any interested musicians and singers in the Philadelphia area. The organizers accept musicians with a broad range of experience, knowledge, and proficiency in order to cultivate a friendly and accepting musical environment. The sound of the South Philly Jam can be characterized as rustic and/or acoustic, with guitar, fiddle, percussion, bass, and harmonica serving as the basic instrumental template. From October to March, the group meets every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 9:00 at Settlement’s Mary Louise Curtis Branch for its weekly jam session. By hosting the South Philly Jam, Settlement helps people celebrate a shared passion for music within an open and non-judgmental environment. St. Lucy Day School St. Lucy Day School for Children with Visual Impairments is a Catholic school that provides spiritual and academic instruction, as well as training in all areas of the expanded core curriculum, thus preparing students for the challenges of life and the pursuit of higher education. Throughout the 2016-2017 school year, with funding from the Alfred B.

Settlement’s Kardon Center for Arts Therapy receives funding from the Widener Foundation to provide six hours of music therapy and four hours of art therapy per week to Widener Elementary students. Combining Settlement’s commitment to arts education with the school’s commitment to helping disabled students achieve their full potential, the art therapists work to inspire and motivate students by challenging them to think creatively and develop their artistic skills.
