East End Performing Arts aims to bring an appreciation and understanding of music and theatre to the children and adults of Pittsburgh’s east end neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs. By interacting with like-minded classmates, it is our hope that students, regardless of age, realize that participation in the arts can:
- Bring together people of all backgrounds
Foster confidence in the abilities and ideas of the individual
- Encourage the individual to take artistic risks and stretch themselves
Show the value of team work
Inspire emotional, intellectual, and artistic growth
The instruction provided through EEPA provides a safe environment in which students learn to “trust their instincts” and stretch themselves creatively.
East End Performing Arts opened its doors in September 2011 and in that time, we have grown along with our students. In the years since, we have offered private voice and piano lessons, one-on-one audition coaching and filming, classes in musical theatre, improvisation, summer camps, and professional development workshops. The private studio is filled with hard-working individuals, each pursuing their own unique goals under the guidance of owner and instructor Jamie Fair.
