Fiddlesticks

Pittsburgh is home to one of the top symphonies in the United States! But the thought of taking younger children to a long concert strikes fear in most of us! Still, we have a desire to introduce our little ones to the richness of the orchestra and the beauty of Heinz Hall! So… how do we do that? Enter “Fiddlesticks”! Sounds like fun already, doesn’t it? Fiddlesticks Family Concerts are Saturday morning events designed for your children ages 3 to 8! Come enjoy a warm, relaxed, interactive environment. See the symphony members up close and personal – ask questions about their instruments! Move to the music, explore rhythms, and make a craft to take home! Then hear the full symphony orchestra, and get Fiddlesticks’ autograph afterward!

We have the perfect time for you and your family to try Fiddlesticks: On February 23rd, the Center for Young Musicians Guitar Group and Guitar Chamber Music Class will be performing in the Heinz Hall lobby prior to the concert! Performance starts at 10:00. CYM families can get discounted tickets by using code 74150 when purchasing tickets!

Bring a friend, and have a blast. Fiddlesticks and CYM are ready for you!

Achievement Day

April 27th, 4-6 PM

Achievement Day is a great opportunity for students and their teachers! Teachers will help their students set an achievable goal in one of their pieces. The student then plays that goal – whether it’s a whole piece or an excerpt (up to 20  minutes) – for immediate feedback from CYM instructors! 

Really meaningful progress in practice time comes from setting goals. Sharing those goals with others and receiving positive reinforcement makes it not only more enjoyable, but also makes that growth more effective and more deeply rooted in habit!

Talk with your teacher today about setting a goal… for Achievement Day!!
