performance is an adventure...
...and education is an art.
where will the arts take you?

What we offer
Arts Detroit offers both group and private lessons in the performing arts, such as:
Arts Detroit is headed to NYC to work with the cast of HAMILTON!
We are so excited! Our instructors Adriane and Kirsten will be taking 9 of our students to the Big Apple in March 2018 to take a series of workshops with the cast of Broadway’s hit musical, Hamilton. This is an incredible opportunity, and we can’t wait to share our stories with you!
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.
What others are saying

Math and science abilityMusicians who understand theory engage in subdividing beats and counting through rhythmic notation.
Cognitive abilityWhen you listen or play music, the brain is actively engaged in spacial-temporal reasoning, increasing spatial and temporal reasoning.
Critical thinkingCreating a musical performance requires thinking procedurally during the performance, which requires reflection, metacognition, and procedural application.
Self disciplineStudying the arts requires practice scheduling practice sessions at preset intervals for specific amounts of time, which instills disciplined habits.
ConfidenceInvolvement in the arts increases opportunities for self-expression and gives them a self of belonging within a specific community.
