Established in 2020, Practice Makes Perfect Music Studio in Greensburg, we focus on teaching students of all ages to be real musicians. We employ world-class instructors with a focus on learning the fundamentals behind music, so our students can fully connect with their instruments. Our instructors create a friendly and safe environment so the students get the most out of their lesson.

With offerings in piano lessons, voice lessons, guitar lessons, trombone lessons, trumpet lessons and more, you can be sure to find the right instrument to learn music with us. Our instructors teach virtual lessons and in person lessons, with most of our in person lessons being located in Westmoreland and Fayette counties.

Our instructors create a friendly and safe environment so the students get the most out of their lesson. Our lessons come with a focus on music theory, sight-reading and technique. We develop our students so that they are able to read music, understand and build chords. Our goal as teachers is to give the necessary tools so that our students can continue to teach themselves. With the proper guidance, anyone can pick up an instrument, and we have confidence in our ability to provide you with these tools and guidance. We stand behind our quality instructors and offer all new students a free, no obligation trial lesson. If you aren't satisfied with your music lesson you can have a free trial with another teacher or simply let us know you weren't satisfied and we promise not to bug you ever again!

We opened our studio to be a safe, welcoming space to learn music. As not only a Black-owned and female-owned, but also an LGBTQ+-owned studio we strive to keep a diverse offering of instructors and are welcoming to ALL students. Not only do we offer a free trial lesson for everyone student, we also feature both in person lessons and virtual lessons. On top of music lessons we also often host masterclasses, both in person and online, and have two recitals per year, to give our students performance experience. Summer specialization courses are also available for anyone, with reduced rates for those already studying with us. Every one of our teachers approach their lessons and instruments with enthusiasm and years of experience. We strive to create a positive learning environment for all of our students because we want them to excel!

  • I would not recommend this business
  • None I'm aware of
  • Seems like a nasty individual.

Mr. Gray took our money and now refuses to return calls or schedule lessons. He has some sort of undiagnosed problem with anger and doesn't seem to be able to function at an adult level.

I’ve been taking voice lessons with Chelsea since February. As a beginner, I was admittedly nervous and self-conscious, but Chelsea has been extremely patient in helping me develop my skills and confidence to such a level that I even sang at my wedding in June! I look forward to each of my lessons and can’t wait to see how Chelsea will help me grow and learn as a musician

My daughter has taken voice lessons with Chelsea Ritenour for a few years now. Watching her grow and learn has been amazing. She makes her feel confident in whatever she sings. Chelsea is easy to communicate with and understanding if things come up. Chelsea is an inspiring person that my daughter looks up too. This studio is a great option for your student.
