Parent Education

Ms. Rochelle held a Parent Education Workshop prior to the 25th anniversary celebration in Sewickley! What a great opportunity for parents who are new to music education. When parents are involved in the musical study of their children, the joy of music can be shared by the whole family!

Folks who stayed after the workshop enjoyed a concert and free ice cream!

CYM Cellists Cool Off the Crowd at Millie’s Ice Cream

Cello Faculty Member, Ryan Ash, and students performed June 8 at Millie’s Ice Cream in Shadyside.  Not much can compare to a group of cellists able to create a completely chill vibe. In addition to sounding great, the young cellists were treated to their choice of ice cream.

Millie’s is a locally-produced treat with two locations, one in Shadyside and one in Market Square.  You can pick up Millie’s at all Market Square versions of Giant Eagle, at T-bones in Wexford, and at B Gourmet in Sewickley.

Thanks, Millie’s for the flavors and the friendship!
