About Rockdale Music

Rockdale Music is a performance based music school in the Philadelphia suburb of Aston, PA. Students of all ages and skill levels are welcome and encouraged to participate in Rockdale’s musical community, including our music camps, rock band programs, and private lessons.

At Rockdale, we know that you don’t work music. You play it! That’s why our experienced instructors make learning new techniques and instruments a fun and creative process. We’re passionate about supporting youth and students of all ages as they take on challenges with excitement and confidence. And with our performance opportunities and recording studio, we do everything we can to make sure the budding musicians we teach can celebrate their accomplishments and share their love for music with the world.

Music lessons should never be a chore. Here, they’re a chance to grow, create, and play on!

From fundamentals to advanced techniques; our students learn to play one or many instruments with correct technique and develop discipline while building confidence and self-esteem. Our teachers are excellent motivators and work patiently with our students on music of the student’s choosing.

Check out all of the amazing testimonials and reviews from our current and former Rockdale students and parents!

Studio owner, Jared Loss, is an alumni of Penncrest High School and Temple University and has been teaching and performing regionally since returning home from California a decade ago. 

His experience as a touring musician and local connections in the Philadelphia music scene give a leg up to his students, many of which have gone on to study music and recording at colleges and universities across the country and are writing, performing and producing their own material with great success.

For over 10 years, Rockdale Music has been a home away from home for many budding musicians. Established as a continuation to the Makin’ Music Rockin’ Rhythms music enrichment programs, Rockdale has become the premier music lesson studio in the Philadelphia area for kids and adults who want to take their playing to the next level.

We offer private lessons, group classes, Summer camps, recording & more with a goal of spreading positivity and a love for music, creativity and arts education.

Students involved in Rockdale’s programs are encouraged to attend and participate in the many performance opportunities offered year round at prominent local music venues such as World Cafe Live, The Ardmore Music Hall and at local events. In addition to our regularly scheduled recitals and concerts, students at Rockdale are presented with opportunities to collaborate and jam with other students in our studio’s friendly, community driven studio.

Join us in our mission to create a creative community centered around music, arts and education for everyone!
