School of Music

Where artistry and innovation share center stage

Preparatory School

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 Jazz & Improvisation accompany private lessons in piano, strings (violin, viola, cello, double bass), guitar, voice, and percussion.
