ABOUT US

We are a collection of teachers who are passionate about helping students realize their full potential. Our instruction goes beyond just lessons. We care about seeing every student aspire to something great, whether beginner or expert. So, we've built a program that uses all of our real-world experience and connections to give the next generation a pipeline to success.

"Kate, the owner, has been easy to work with, responsive to questions, has easy online payment, and provides a huge bonus - virtual lessons! They even kept lessons going through the pandemic seamlessly. My daughter's teacher, Emily, has been fantastic. She is professional and clearly well trained, and yet she is able to keep lessons pressure-free through her encouraging and positive style. My typically shy daughter LOVES her voice and piano lessons. Highly recommend!"

"Our children have taken piano, voice, and guitar lessons for over 2 years with Pittsburgh School of the Arts, and it has been a wonderful experience! Their teacher is knowledgeable and encouraging. She comes to our house which is a big help with a large family. Our children have progressed remarkably and truly enjoy their music endeavors! There are plenty of opportunities to perform and participate in the National Music Festival. They also participated in the percussion camp and writing workshop this summer, and all enjoyed them immensely!"

"As an adult, more than eight years ago, I began taking piano lessons from Kate Griffin, now owner of Pittsburgh School of the Arts. She’s an amazing woman, a talented musician, and now has a new, much larger facility for her studio and additional classes in the creative arts. I took an adult class in the summer, “The Art of the Novel and Personal Essay“. It was fantastic!"
