Music Lessons

  • My daughter has been taking lessons on guitar, piano, and voice with Phil for two years now and her improvement has been outstanding. Phil has a way of making the lessons less intimidating by his friendly demeanor and his genuine enthusiasm for his job. I would highly recommend Love The Arts and Phil Mancini to anyone seeking musical instruction for their child. Jim Beviglia


  • My daughter has been taking violin lessons for 12 months now and absolutely loves going to her lessons !!! Not to mention how beautiful she is playing in such a short time, Thanks to a great teacher like Phil Mancini. I have older children that took lessons at other places , they didn't learn much and became very discussed and stopped playing. I wish I would have known about Phil and Love the Arts years ago. I recommend Phil Mancini very highly to anyone looking to give their child the best learning experience with an instrument. I can go on and on about how great of a teacher he is but to sum it up .. if I had to rate Love the Arts and Phil Mancini as a music teacher on a 5 star scale , 5 stars would not be enough !! Ruth Nawrocki


  • "I began lessons with Phil at age 11 on guitar and continued on and off for the next 15 years. His patience and ability to work with different experience levels, from beginner to expert, is unmatched. He is by far THE BEST music teacher in all of PA." William Barrett


  • I learned more from you this hour than I have from 15 lessons from a previous teacher. Bill Dorsh


  • We had our Christmas play tonight and i think it went pretty well =D I had to sing a solo with my guitar! Thanks to my great teacher Mr. Phil and lots of hard work I did it with no mistakes and got lots of nice complements afterward. =D Mark Snyder via Facebook Denise Ettel Michauskas commented on Mark Snyder's status:"You guys did great Mark, we really enjoyed the play and the fellowship.

  • I just want to say how thankful I am to have you teaching my kids your wonderful gift of Music <3 you are truly a Blessing!! Theresa Connolly


  • I hired Philip to provide guitar lessons for our son approximately 1 1/2 years ago. He is a phenomenal teacher. Philip has not only provided a much needed and valuable service, but he has been a great source of support. He has helped my son develop his musical talent and continues to do so with every lesson. I cannot think of a better teacher to have. I am sure we will continue to use Philip's services for many years to come. Lisa Wormuth


  • I've been taking lessons from Mr. Mancini for a few months now. He is an awesome teacher, and knows exactly what he is talking about. Besides the fact that he is a polished musician, he is a great teacher. He makes things understandable, and determined to make you a better musician. Awesome teacher! =) - Sean Guziewicz
