My 13 year old has been taking piano for almost a year and we love it. They have a great relationship with the kids and my daughter has learned so much and really enjoys it!

Arts Detroit is top notch. If your child is interested in piano or voice lessons, come here! It feels more like a family than a business. Adriane is amazing!!

Why study the arts?

Years of research shows that engaging in arts education has dramatic impact on learning and social skills, such as:

Math and science ability

Musicians who understand theory engage in subdividing beats and counting through rhythmic notation.

Language development

Musicians learn to be attentive listeners, a skill that enhances phonetics and fluency, allowing a child to expand their vocabulary and promotes word recognition.

Cognitive ability

When you listen or play music, the brain is actively engaged in spacial-temporal reasoning, increasing spatial and temporal reasoning.

Critical thinking

Creating a musical performance requires thinking procedurally during the performance, which requires reflection, metacognition, and procedural application.

Self discipline

Studying the arts requires practice scheduling practice sessions at preset intervals for specific amounts of time, which instills disciplined habits.


Involvement in the arts increases opportunities for self-expression and gives them a self of belonging within a specific community.

About Us

Arts Detroit began as a private music studio in 2005 and has since been brought under the umbrella of Center Stage Studios, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. We are currently located in Allen Park, Michigan.

Arts Detroit strives to give each student the opportunity to advance creatively as an individual. We hope to empower a student to find their inspiration and express it through their art, and to possess the confidence to do so. Additionally, to help each student understand, recognize and appreciate the unique and inestimable abilities they and their peers hold, as well as to impress upon and excite them to appreciate the fine arts.

As lifelong students, we hope to be able to give back all that we have learned, both as a unique collection of individuals as well as as a collective artistic unit, and to continue learning through each of our students. We believe we have been given an extraordinary opportunity to pass on all that the arts has given us, and watch as each student explores each note, each movement, each word, and each creative experience to find the perfect moment to create their own.
