Welcome to the Kardon-Northeast Branch

Our Kardon-Northeast (KNE) branch serves a diverse community within Northeast Philadelphia and is the main hub of Settlement Music School’s arts therapy program.  Partnering with many off-site local institutions and facilities, the Branch strives to meet the various needs of our students with programs such as early childhood music classes to a variety of senior offerings. Take a look at KNE’s hallways on any given Saturday and you will see, hear, and experience a robust, active and family-friendly environment, from ballet rehearsal to Children’s Music Workshop programs and private lessons. There is a place for everyone at our Kardon-Northeast Branch!

Summer Hours:
Monday through Thursday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
