Join the Cunningham Music
The Cunningham Piano Company is proudly owned and operated by degreed musicians who have always dedicated their lives to music. Because of that deep love of music and music education that the Cunningham Piano Company has always been based on, we opened the Cunningham Music School.
Our expert staff has at least a B.Mus (although many pursued higher education to reach their full musical potential), and all of them have years of teaching experience behind them. We supplement our second-to-none lessons program with numerous performance opportunities, classes, and workshops. That, combined with our highly consultative approach makes us excited to say that we are sure that no one offers as well-rounded a music education as the Cunningham Music School lessons program.
Conducting Camp July 18-22
The Cunningham Music School is excited to offer a summer conducting class for high school students! All young aspiring musicians will need to know how to conduct someday in their music careers, but most music students don’t get a chance to try it until well into college. Conducting teacher, Ryan Peteraf, will be leading the week. Students will learn a broad array of beginner skills, such as patterns, technique, repertoire, and leadership responsibilities. This camp will look at both choral and orchestral conducting and their unique challenges. Students will be given the opportunity to conduct for their colleagues and receive one-on-one instruction in technique.
Remote Lessons with the
Cunningham Music School
The Cunningham Music School will now include remote lessons as part of our normal offerings. New students can affiliate with a school (Cherry Hill or King of Prussia) and start with remote lessons OR students can simply enroll in the Cunningham Music School Virtual School and not affiliate with either of our brick and mortar locations.
Learn more about our safety regulations and what in-person lessons will looks like starting with our summer session.
The Piano Program at the Cunningham Music School
We have pianos programs that run from basic beginners of all ages, all the way up to professional coachings. Our teachers are able to help you build up your reading, theory, aural, and technical skills at any level. We have students that are neuroatypical and have physical limitations, we have students that are as young as five, and on the other side of the spectrum we have students that are piano teachers themselves and students hold degrees in piano and organ performance and are seeing us for a professional coaching–not to mention everyone in between.
Our piano program goes beyond lessons, offering our students performance opportunities, accompaniment opportunities, practical music theory, aural music theory, experience in a variety of styles, group-play opportunities, and experience in improvisational skills–all of our students are welcome to take advantage of that as much or as little as they would like.

The Voice Program at the Cunningham Music School
In addition to our unique elementary voice programming, we also take private voice students from ages 13+. These lessons give students experience with a variety of styles, a strong technical background, performance experience, and experience working with an accompanist. All of our voice students receive music theory training, aural training, sight-reading, vocal technique based in the Bel Canto tradition, and the opportunity to sing in our school’s chorale ensemble (The Cunningham Community Choir), and training in acting and experession. We are happy to take students from beginners all the way up to professional coachings for students that have received their B.Mus in Vocal Performance.
