Location

Magic Bus:

For those students who need transportation to the North Side, try this custom map of the CATA W Route-- complete with pickup and drop-off times nearest the lesson studio. If you will be driving, you may find this custom Google Maps pointer to be helpful.

Driving Directions:

Enjoy the scenic drive from Rt. 322, North Atherton Street to the Instructor's Guitar Lesson studio in Park Forest Village, the cozy neighborhood on the North side of State College. For those who enjoy an occasional getaway from the hussle and bustle of big-city living in Downtown State College, this is an added bonus. wink

From Downtown State College or Huntingdon

Huntingdon:

  1. If travelling from Juniata College, or the Huntingdon area
  2. Head down the mountain toward State College-- taking College Ave (Rt. 26) till it splits at Beaver Ave.
  3. Continue on Beaver Ave until you hit Atherton Street. From Beaver Ave., turn head North.

Downtown, State College

  1. If you're unfamiliar with the State College area, in general, it may be best to start from Downtown and follow these steps:
  2. Rolling out to rock from Downtown State College? Get on West College Avenue and head to the Atherton Street intersection (near the Collegian, Arby's, & the Minit-Mart. From College Avenue, turn Right onto North Atherton Street (a.k.a. Route 322), heading North, or as some say, “... like you're going toward Wal-Mart, Champs, or Lowes...”.
  3. Continue on Atherton Street, passing Penn State University campus on the right, then the College Heights neighborhood and Blockbuster, going beyond Cherry Lane, the Waffle Shoppe, Giant at Northland Center, and Wal-Mart. Still travelling North on Route 322, shortly after passing Target and Wegman's shopping areas, you'll merge into the left-turn lane, turning left onto Valley Vista at the Sheetz gas station. Jeff will explain details from this point.

From Altoona, Bellefonte, Lewistown

Altoona:

From Altoona, take Rt 220 past Philipsburg and Port Matilda, to Rt 322 toward Skytop, continuing on the highway until you crest the hill near the outskirts of State College, where you will take the 322 Business exit (aka. Atherton Street). Soon after exiting, you'll approach a 4-way traffic light where you'll see a huge Sheetz convenience store. The road which intersects 322 Business from the right is Valley Vista. Jeff will provide details from here.

Bellefonte:

Take your favourite route to 322, as if you were going toward Mt. Nittany Medical Center (aka. the Hospital). Continue on 322 toward Philipsburg and Altoona. Exit 322 at the very first exit beyond the exit to Toftrees and Woodycrest. Jeff will give you detailed directions to travel on Valley Vista from the Sheetz convenience store near that exit onto 322 Business / Atherton Street.

Lewistown

Travelling toward State College on Rt. 322, do not take the 322 Business route, but continue on the by-pass for a faster route around State College. Continue on 322 toward Philipsburg and Altoona. Exit 322 at the very first exit beyond the exit to Toftrees and Woodycrest. Jeff will give you detailed directions to travel on Valley Vista from the Sheetz convenience store near that exit onto 322 Business / Atherton Street.

Should you choose to schedule a home-visit, the lesson fee adjustment will depend upon travel time and distance. If time allows, the instructor is willing to travel up to 20 miles. For example, a student whose house-call would require 20 miles travel by the instructor, the student would be required to pay for the time to travel 40 miles-- or approximately an hour's fee on top of the regular lesson fee. A special arrangement such as this will be negotiable on a case by case basis.
