One of the best ways to stay motivated in any task is to set goals.
CYM students have several options for participating in opportunities that lead to musical growth, while fostering diligence, perseverance, and using their skills to bring music into the lives of others!

We can be assured the future of CYM is bright when we hear performances like this! Our youngest violinists performed at our annual Ensemble Recital with confidence, led by teachers Ms Rochelle and Mr Chris, with Ms Amy at the piano!
Our faculty enjoy being together and working to create memorable experiences for our students and their families!
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!
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!
