PRETEEN

Education Programs


Students ages 8 - 12 are eligible for our preteen program, where they will begin to learn the skills leading them to be seasoned performers. Pittsburgh Musical Theater strives to sufficiently challenge, while never overwhelming your student.

If you are unsure of your student's placement (just turning 8, just turning 13, etc) please contact us and we will be happy to talk over the best options for your student.

No prior experience is required for entrance into our programs.
