The Arts Greenhouse is a free hip-hop music education program serving Pittsburgh teenagers through the resources of Carnegie Mellon. Thus far, this goal has been met through music technology classes, workshops on special topics relating to hip-hop, and performances that bring socially conscious artists to Pittsburgh.

Currently the Arts Greenhouse holds music technology classes at Carnegie Mellon, and workshops around the Pittsburgh area. Pittsburgh teens, ages 13 to 19, are welcome to attend. Participants can also schedule time in the Carnegie Mellon School of Music Recording Studio through the Arts Greenhouse. Every semester we distribute a music album featuring work produced by participants in the program. The Arts Greenhouse reserves a non-exclusive right to distribute all music created with the program for promotional purposes, or for fund raising.

Classes are on Saturdays, from 1:30 to 4:30pm, in Margaret Morrison Hall, room 119A. Click here for more info and a map.

Workshops take place once to twice a month at various locations, check our calendar for dates and venues.
