School of Music



Sister Francis Assisi Gorham founded the Seton Center School of Music in 1986. Originally called the Seton Suzuki School of Music, we now offer "traditional' music instruction, but we are still dedicated to the ideals and teaching methods of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki.

Our students have achieved great success within the community. Many now play in their schools and churches, and many alumni and current students play in youth orchestras in the Pittsburgh area, such as the Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony Youth Orchestra. School of Music students have also been successful in local competitions, winning honors in events such as the 2003 and 2004 City Music Center Young Artists Competitions.

The Chamber Orchestra of Seton Center has traveled to bring its music to communities both in Pittsburgh and outside the local area, including Toronto, Virginia Beach, and New York City. The Chamber Orchestra also won Superior ratings as an ensemble and for its soloists at the North American Music Festivals in 2001, 2002, and 2003.
