The Pittsburgh MOB Directory is an ongoing effort to collect information on all of the mom-owned businesses in the city.  It is my hope that this project will inspire us all to support the hard work of fellow Pittsburgh mothers!

If you are a Pittsburgh mother and would like to enter your own business, please click “Submit a Listing” below.  Note, your listing will need to be approved by an administrator before it will appear in full.

If you are looking for a product or service offered by a Pittsburgh mother, you have several choices.  You can click “View Listings” to get the complete listing of ALL Pittsburgh mom-owned businesses I have collected so far.  You can also click “Directory” to view listings by category.  Or you can input a search term to find something more specific.

Offering Music Together® Classes in Pittsburgh's South Hills

Did you know that all children are musical?

Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?

Welcome to Music Together, the internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the grown-ups who love them. We pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally, appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes adult involvement.

We believe in the power of music, that every child is musical and, given the right environment, can learn to sing in tune and move with accurate rhythm.
