2019 – New Year, New Goals!

New Year, New Goals! One of the best ways to make progress in anything is to set goals for yourself. January is a natural time to think about a path of success and how to achieve all that your heart desires! At Center for Young Musicians, we believe in having our students set goals – for performance, for musicianship, and for bringing music into the lives of others! Every student has a “CYM Annual Goals” card. How many items has your student checked off in “Performance and Event Goals”? Three? Four? Check the calendar for upcoming events, and talk with your teacher! Let’s see 7 check-marks on your card this session! Reach for the stars!

Another 200-Day Practice Challenge Winner!

Congratulations to piano student of Ms. Simmi, Kenzie Bucchi, for being awarded with a 200-Day Practice Challenge trophy!  Not only did Kenzie give a great performance at the Holiday Concert, but she worked very hard for 200 straight days to achieve this huge accomplishment.  Keep it up, Kenzie!

A Holiday Highlight: CYM Holiday Concert 2018

The evening of December 21st, the First Unitarian Church of Shadyside was bustling with activity- several meetings and a dance recital were going on upstairs, and downstairs, was CYM’s 2018 Holiday Concert.  With 34 student performers, this concert was well over double the size of last year’s Holiday Concert.  The space was packed with proud parents, dedicated students, and young children, who sat up front admiring and learning from the performers.  The hour long performance lead by guitar teacher Mr. Erich included piano, violin, cello, and guitar students.  We are so proud of everyone for closing out the 2018 year with smiling faces, beautiful music, and an atmosphere of positive energy.

 

CYM Students Play at the Nutcracker

Our cello and violin students entertained concert-goers of the Nutcracker at the beautiful Heinz Hall.  They gave pre-concert and intermission performances, and got to watch the Nutcracker.  It has been so fun to see our young musicians perform all through Pittsburgh this holiday season; and we are so proud of all who have participated.

  

CYM Student Graduates From Suzuki Book

A big congratulations to Eliza, cello student of Mr. Ryan, who graduated from Suzuki Book 2 last Saturday!  Completing a Suzuki book takes many months of hard work and dedication.  Good luck with your future cello endeavors, Eliza!

PPG Wintergarden Performance

On Saturday, December 15th, CYM students entertained ice skaters!  Guitar and piano students performed festive music for the families at PPG Wintergarden, creating an atmosphere of holiday cheer.  It’s amazing how professionally our young musicians conduct themselves in public settings; we are so proud of them!
