It is time to turn our thoughts to warmer days ahead!
Summer is a wonderful time to refresh, try something new, or expand on what you love!
Always wanted to play the ukulele? How about the guitar? Want to join a choir?
For these opportunities and more, we have a great line up for you this summer!
Summer Ukulele Workshop
Children (and their parents) will learn the basics rhythm and harmony while having fun strumming and singing familiar songs. No previous experience with ukulele or any other instruments necessary. Children can use their own instruments, or purchase one from CYM.
5 sessions, $125. Sign up here!
Music Discovery Camp
Music Discovery Camp is a morning of music, art and play for ages 3 – 6, held 9:30 – 12:00 noon each camp day! Have fun making music and new friends at the Center for Young Musicians. Learn and explore music-making with CYM’s trained faculty. Based on our Early Childhood Music programs, Music Discovery Camp fosters musical understanding using the same process as learning a language. Activities include time for the children to make their own instruments, time listening to older children perform, a Sing, Move, Play session, as well as time to explore and play rhythm instruments used in the session! All activities appeal to a child’s natural desire to play, move, explore and interact through activity and song.
This camp will run from 9:30am – 12pm in three locations: CYM Wexford, week of June 22-June 26; CYM Shadyside, week of July 6-10; and CYM Sewickley week of July 27-July 31.
One week camp: $250. Sign up here!
CYM Summer Choir
Summer Choir is back! For ages 8-16, this treble choir of unchanged voices will master a variety of repertoire, further their understanding of score and note-reading, learn about proper vocal production, and more! Add a little choreography here and there, some solos, and some percussion, and we will have a great time along the way. The series of weekly choir rehearsals, led by Ms. Lindsay and Ms. Amy, will culminate in a performance for family and friends!
