Preparatory Center for the Performing Arts

Since 1978, the Preparatory Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College has provided a nurturing and fun setting where our talented, professional artist-teachers develop children's skills in music, theater and dance to their fullest potential. Skills developed in the arts promote confidence and self-esteem, traits essential for any path taken in life. The Prep Center staff work in collaboration with parents and faculty to insure the best course of study for students. Children ages 3 to 18 at all levels of study are welcome.  

Adults may receive private instruction in music, theater and dance at beginner to advanced levels. There are also group classes in guitar, voice and piano.

The Prep Center school year runs from September through June.

Additional new classes are offered in the spring semester.

Our summer session runs for six weeks from July through August.

Children, teens and adults may register at any time for private lessons, subject to teacher availability.
