“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.

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!
If you have any questions about future events like this, please talk to your teacher, or email Ms. Rochelle at email@example.com.

Piano students Andrew Li, Clara Yuo, Lakshmi Mulgund, Jayne Miner & Abby Bojalad enjoy an afternoon at Heinz Hall before a PSO concert.
On Sunday, June 10, Ms. Simmi Tripathi led several of her students to beautiful Heinz Hall to play in the lobby for the pre-PSO performance audience.
CYM students have performed regularly at Heinz Hall for over 20 years. Each performance reminds of us how grateful we are to enjoy such a substantial cultural resource.
Thank you PSO!
