A Message from our President...
Welcome to the new CYM school year!
The faculty and I are excited to begin the musical year with returning and new families. The beginning of the school year brings the pleasures of seeing and hearing how returning students have matured and grown and the fun of introducing a child to music, whether in a Toddlers class or as a beginning instrumentalist. We at CYM want to make sure that every child's musical journey is a process that is unique and satisfying. I look forward to hearing singing in the classrooms, and performances on the stage!
Leah Givelber, CYM President
Welcome Back to Music!
Happy September to all students, families and friends of the Center for Young Musicians! We are very excited to be starting a new school year of fun, friends and musicianship.
Just a few highlights:
We are pleased to welcome three new faculty members to CYM: Simmi Tripathi (piano), Ryan Ash (cello) and Danny Rectenwald (guitar). Help them feel welcome by saying hi and introducing yourselves! Think you know your own teacher pretty well? Check out the TakeNote blog for Who's Who at the Center for Young Musicians- short biographies on all CYM faculty and staff, where you are sure to find some surprises.
Department group classes
Department group classes start this month! Please see the CYM calendar for dates for each instrument group. This is a great opportunity to hear and play with students of different abilities and styles, and to get to know your classmates a little better. Classes are Saturdays in Wexford at 9 a.m. and open to all private lesson students.
Exciting performance opportunities are shaping up for the new school year! If you plan to perform in the Ensemble Recital on Nov. 3, please let your teacher know as soon as possible!
For Wexford families, Route 19 construction project continues so please plan for extra time when coming to class. Hang in there! Travel should be smooth and easy when finished!
In Wexford, please remember to back into your parking space. This is very important for safety with children around. Please refer to the parking diagram on the bulletin board in the waiting area.
Please return your Contact Preferences and Media Release form, if you haven’t done so.
Getting back to work!
Trading in the lazy days of summer for school work (and instrument practice!) can be a little rough even for the biggest of bookworms. Check out these tips on getting back into the school groove, and remember to fit your music studies into the routine!
