A Jolly Time Had by All at Sewickley Light Up Night!

December 11, 2019

CYM staff and faculty had a great time playing hosts to hundreds of Light Up Night folks! Mr. Rob and Mr. Jake greeted everyone coming in and quickly discerned if they were performers or just visiting! Students had fun finding their names on the Recital Performers sign. Guests and performers alike made their way to the Jingle Bell Bracelet table, where Ms. Amy and her daughter, Elise, were ready to demonstrate the fine art of combining pipe cleaners and jingle bells! Meanwhile, Ms. Lindsay was sending performers to the back concert room, where several recitals took place! It was fun to hear the music come all the way down the hall to those just entering our doors. So many great conversations took place regarding lessons and classes. Everyone was on hand to get the word out about all the great things happening at CYM. Thank you to all who assisted...

December 11, 2019

  Student Gabi Götz took advantage of the Antonio Hart workshop, and had an excellent experience. Here are some reflections written by Gabi’s dad:   We got there early, and Gabi was messing around on the piano, and when Antonio showed up he gave Gabi a little 1-on-1 session on jazz/piano.

But all through his experience the recurring theme was that you really have to love what you’re doing because it takes a lot of dedication and work. He...
