At the Carnegie Mellon Music Preparatory School, distinguished professional musicians and educators train talented Pittsburgh-area children.

Our goal is to give children ages 4 through 18 technical, academic and artistic proficiency in music.

Comprehensive classes in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Musicianship, Theory and Composition and Improvisation accompany private lessons in either piano, strings (violin, viola, cello, double bass), guitar and percussion.
