“We have patronized many performing arts schools, lessons, summer camps, choirs with my daughter and our most positive experience has been with Sunburst. We highly recommend this studio.”
“The instructors are truly top-notch, taking a student-centered approach which we've seen build a ton of confidence in both our children… both of our kids are enthusiastic to return week after week.”
“Three years ago I decided to pursue a lifelong dream of learning to play the guitar. Why I put it off so long, I don’t know!... Whatever direction you want to go, whatever age you are, Sunburst will take you there in a relaxing, fun way, in a beautiful studio environment.“
1. Friendly, experienced, patient, qualified and fun instructors for all of our instruments.
Our teachers all have either university training or professional performance experience and are here to help you take your playing to the next level. Taking lessons should be fun and all of our instructors love sharing their passion with you and helping you discover yours.
Along with Guitar, Voice, Piano, Bass and Drums we are the only school in town offering lessons in DJing and Music Production where students learn to sample records, make beats and build their own sonic masterpiece.
2. Rock band programs, Kids music exploration class, an acapella group plus spring break and summer camps for a social music experience.
While private lessons are essential for building skill, technique, determination and consistency, nothing can beat a group music experience when it comes to developing confidence, character and creativity!
Our range of group programs takes kids from their first notes all the way to rocking out on stage and recording albums of original material and teaches them skills for life. Read more about our group programs below:
3. Free Recitals for all students at our in house concert venue and performance opportunities at community events and on stage at venues all over Pittsburgh.
All students are invited and encouraged to perform at our seasonal recital concerts, open mic events and with our band programs on stage at venues like the Hard Rock Cafe, Mr Smalls Theatre and more.
Preparing to perform and getting up there and playing or singing your heart out is the best way to get the most from your music lessons, enhance your practicing and really learn your craft. All of our teachers are performers themselves and will help you become one too.
4. Our studio is open 7 days per week to fit your busy schedule.
We offer lessons 3-9 Monday - Thursday, 3-7 Fridays, 9-5 Saturdays & 11-5 Sundays. Our lessons are month to month and we have a flexible make up policy to help keep our students on track. Our friendly and knowledgeable office staff is here to help get you set up a free first lesson.
We also offer online music lessons via Zoom for those looking to learn an instrument from home!
