Music lessons for ADULTS for the fun of it! Beginning lessons for piano, guitar, ukulele, banjo. We’re not talking performing at Carnegie Hall, but those who have always wanted to pick up a guitar and strum a couple of tunes or play a few riffs. We’re here for those who want to sit down at a piano and play a simple old standard.  Playful Cat Music was created to teach adults to play music for the fun of it.  Located in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh, we offer beginning lessons on piano, guitar, and  ukulele, at a reasonable price.

    Structured, informative, good combination of music theory and tunes. We're moving along with each lesson building on the previous lesson,

    Linda was very accommodating to us. My daughter is loving her lessons.

    Linda, of Playful Cat Music, is a genius musician and a gifted teacher. She makes learning to play an instrument fun. She can play the piano, guitar, flute, and ukulele!. Linda taught my son how to play the acoustic guitar and to have an appreciation for the music he was learning to play. She wove music theory and history into each lesson. He learned to play the classics, blues, and rock. Linda is dedicated, kind, and easy going. “Linda is a great teacher, She made it easy for me to learn the guitar. She took the time to review every piece of music with me. She would play the songs on her guitar and play a video of the band playing the song I was learning, so I could hear how it needed to sound. That helped so much!”
