Parent Education

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!

CYM Cellists Cool Off the Crowd at Millie’s Ice Cream

Cello Faculty Member, Ryan Ash, and students performed June 8 at Millie’s Ice Cream in Shadyside.  Not much can compare to a group of cellists able to create a completely chill vibe. In addition to sounding great, the young cellists were treated to their choice of ice cream.

Millie’s is a locally-produced treat with two locations, one in Shadyside and one in Market Square.  You can pick up Millie’s at all Market Square versions of Giant Eagle, at T-bones in Wexford, and at B Gourmet in Sewickley.

Thanks, Millie’s for the flavors and the friendship!

Fiddling Workshop Held at our Sewickley Location

This summer we sure had some fun with the folk cousin of the violin: the fiddle! Our young violinists used techniques they already knew to explore the basics of fiddling technique! They learned lots of new tunes together, and experimented with some familiar tunes. They traveled around the world to visit fiddle music from different cultures. Fiddlers played, practiced, and jammed together to make a summer full of folk music and fun!
