Reconnecting with a CYM Alum! – Meredith Hopkins

We recently reconnected with one of our CYM Alums, Meredith Hopkins!

When we asked her about how her time here at CYM was, and how it impacted her life, she said,

“I honestly can’t remember a time that I wasn’t a student at CYM. Since starting kinder music at 17 months and then violin at 3 1/2, music has been the foundation of my life! I always looked forward to group class every week to see my friends. The instruction I received from my teachers at CYM over the years sculpted me to become the best person and musician I could be.

After CYM, I graduated from Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music with a BM in Violin Performance and then went on to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, Scotland to get my Masters in Traditional Scottish Music. I won the title of National Scottish Fiddle Champion this past September and, now teach private/group lessons in Ann Arbor, MI!”

-Meredith Hopkins (formally Meredith Hudock)

It was great hearing from you, Meredith!

Classical Guitar Education

Strumming to Beat of Different Music Program in Santa Fe
“Even if you don’t want to be a musician, music makes you more aware of your surroundings as a human being,” he said. “You develop more of a sensibility to the things that are going on around you. I have students in class who are having a hard time in their lives and when they start playing the guitar they forget about it — at least for that hour of class.”
