Study Music to Understand One Another Better!

 

Here’s a interesting article that highlights how music and empathy are closely related.

http://www.newsweek.com/empathic-people-experience-music-differently-pleasure-973784

I’d like to highlight the value of being able to understand others’ perspectives and anticipate their needs.  Surely this is a basic skill that increases decision-making capabilities and fosters a service-to-others orientation.  If we can help develop empathy in our students by studying music, then it’s another tool in their toolbox with which to craft a happy life!

Empathy is also the foundation of great friendships.  Who hasn’t lost themselves for a few moments in hearing a friend relate some adventure, or misadventure?  Empathy is what makes books and movies so enjoyable.

Once more, the study of music shows up on the list of formative activities that impact the quality of one’s life!

Keep the music on!

CYM Cellists Cool Off the Crowd at Millie’s 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 in the ability 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.

Visit Millie’s on the web at  http://www.millieshomemade.com/

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