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 either piano, strings (violin, viola, cello, double bass), guitar and percussion.
