Welcome to Kathy's Music

Kathy’s Music is a unique music program that offers a 20-year progression of musical study, from Kindermusik early childhood education classes to private music lessons for children and adults.

Our Kindermusik program is one of the largest in the world, with classes for children from babies to 7-year-olds. You’ll become a part of a community, watching your child grow from a baby whose brain thrives on musical learning, to an older child preparing to embark on music study of her own.

In addition to our Kindermusik classes, we offer some of the most diverse private music lessons in Pittsburgh for children and adults through our Music Artistry Program. More than just a weekly lesson, Music Artistry gives our students the chance to master an instrument and build a repertoire or study an instrument for fun and enjoyment.

We welcome learners of all ages into our four Pittsburgh-area studios – Mt. Lebanon, Squirrel Hill, McMurray and Robinson Township.

Whether your interest lies in piano lessons for yourself or Kindermusik classes for your child, we invite you to join us for your musical journey that could last for decades!
