Why study the performing arts?

Here are some exerpts (from a transcript issued by the White House) from Michelle Obama's speech at the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School:

“We believe strongly that the arts aren't somehow an 'extra’ part of our national life, but instead we feel that the arts are at the heart of our national life. It is through our music, our literature, our art, drama and dance that we tell the story of our past and we express our hopes for the future. Our artists challenge our assumptions in ways that many cannot and do not. They expand our understandings, and push us to view our world in new and very unexpected ways…..

"It's through this constant exchange -- this process of taking and giving, this process of borrowing and creating -- that we learn from each other and we inspire each other. It is a form of diplomacy in which we can all take part."


Foundational technique with highly qualified instructors makes KAMA the right choice.

Our mission is to set your student up for success in the performing arts. That means our teachers focus on the building blocks of arts education: theory, technique, history, auditioning, and performance strategy.

We hold two to three all-school recitals per year, we provide access to collaboration between students of different disciplines, and we prepare our students for any regional auditions, adjudications, or master classes that pique their interest.

KAMA also means convenience. Auto-debit, online enrollment, up-to-date website calendar, email, Facebook and Twitter updates, sibling discounts/multiple student priority scheduling, and a commitment to staying abreast of the latest music technology, all make your experience with us as streamlined as possible.
Are you an older beginner? KAMA accepts students of all ages and abilities. Let us help you find your passion!
