- About Us
Reimagination Project provides a unique approach to music education for high school teens from the Pittsburgh region. Over the past ten years, we have engaged more than 240 young musicians looking to hone their skills, learn about the music industry and prepare to launch their careers. Reimagination alumni include GRAMMY-winning artist Daya, Emmy-winning artist Jessica Bitsura, American Idol contestant Sloane Simon, and blues phenom, Pierce Dipner.

“This was a good way to sort of start a farm team of young musicians and help them get the experience that 99 percent of other young musicians in town are not getting by offering a studio experience, masterclasses to talk about booking and songwriting and also provide them with shows…” -Greg Joseph, Executive Producer
Also, we partner with local producers, musicians, and recording studios to put Reimagination in motion. Past collaborators include Dave Hidak at The Church Recording Studio, Carolyn Slouthour at 25 Carrick Avenue, INEZ, livefromthecity, DJ Shoe, Rick Witkowski, Jenn Wertz, Poogie Bell, Jon Bindley, Liz Berlin, Jake Hanner, Joe Munroe, Brian Edwards, Melinda Colaizzi, Sean McDonald at Red Medicine Recording Studio, and Amos Levy and James Brown of The YMCA Lighthouse Project.
Reimagination has been presented with funding from The Grable Foundation, Williams Coulson Johnson Lloyd Parker & Tedesco, LLC, UPMC Diversified Services, an affiliate of UPMC Health Plan, and the members of WYEP.
