A big thank you to CYM faculty for making this new event a great success!
Mr Erich, Mr Chris and Mr Mark “dazzled” with their beautiful holiday music, while Ms Amy introduced hundreds of children and their families to instruments of all kinds! The event concluded with everyone gathered outside for a brilliant fireworks display!
Watch for this event next year- and be sure to join in the fun!
Our annual Fall Ensemble Recital was a grand success! The students performed with polish and poise! Our faculty took part by performing two beautiful arrangements by Mr Chris. Ms Simmi spoke on the importance of piano ensembles, and Ms Amy reminded us of the dramatic effect of early childhood music study. Awards were presented for the practice challenge!
It was great for so many of us to be together in one big celebration of music, accomplishments, food, and fun!
We heard so many wonderful piano duets!

The piano trio was truly a highlight of the program!
Siena Smith performed her Suzuki Piano Book 2 recital on Friday, October 12 and did a fantastic job! Congratulations, Siena!
On Saturday night, Clara Yuo performed in PMTA’s Honors’ Recital for the Dorothy Sutton Performance Festival contestants who are advancing to the state level. She played the first movement of Beethoven Piano Sonata, Op. 49 No. 2 and performed beautifully!
Congratulations to CYM Wexford student, Clara Yuo, who took part in PMTA’s Performance Festival this past weekend! The young pianist, who is a student of Ms. Simmi Tripathi, earned a Superior rating in performance, and scored a 103 on her written theory exam, earning her an advancement to the next level of competition! Congratulations to both on your dedication and hard work!
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.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Kickoff Party! Wow- 25 years of memories, music, and friendship! What a great celebration we had commemorating this wonderful milestone! The Graeter’s ice cream was fabulous (now you know!) and we had stellar performances from our CYM students and faculty all afternoon!
The stage is set!
Everyone raved about the ice cream!
