Main Line Center for Bartending provides a hands-on learning environment to become a Pennsylvania-state-licensed bartender in just one, two, or five weeks. Each class spends at least 80% of the time behind the bar, with the remaining time filled with lectures, role-playing, or brainstorming how to mix undiscovered beauties, such as the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. In class, students tend to a 35-foot bar completely stocked with all the necessary equipment. By the end of each session, wet-eared barkeeps will grasp the mixing of more than 250 drinks, ins and outs of general bar duties, and how to enlighten patrons with astute customer service and a convincingly consoling wipe-down of the guest-tender gap.

The natural-light-bathed Retro City Studios features one of the best live rooms in the city and a host of customizable isolation rooms. In the main recording room overlooking the entire space, you'll be able to play and fiddle with board after board of high-end tuning technology. Taught by working professional musicians (the founders of Retro), classes will help you quickly pick up the fundamentals of recording and audio production, using your hands and your mad sense of beat to manipulate and therefore familiarize yourself with the core properties of sound. From there, you'll handle all the obscure pieces of equipment and the latest Pro-Tools and MIDI programs before giving it your grooviest shot at mixing your own track. Even the least aurally talented can always slam the Auto Auto-Tune button, and everyone gets a free T-shirt at the end of the session, even if the koalas can't shake it to your custom dub.

Daniel Cullen, founder of Rawk U School of Music, is already frets ahead of most music instructors, and a living defiance of the adage that "those who can't do, teach." It's not just because he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music, or that he's toured the nation with his musical projects; Cullen rocks out in Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones cover bands when he's not instilling young players with shredding skills. Embracing the fact the best way to learn to play is by learning the songs you love, Cullen and the crew of Rawk U School of Music light the path for budding players with Rock Classes that usually culminate in public performances, giving students the confidence to play before crowds and the experience to outrun groupies like a pro.
