What Is CYM?

Center for Young Musicians is a highly-regarded 27 year old music school that “lives” inside the Craft Your Music platform and also has physical locations in and around Pittsburgh.


CYM students develop liberated ability, refined characters, and a life-long love of music.


Long-term relationships are a testament to CYM’s emphasis on an early start, thorough music literacy and performance training, and a commitment to supporting those who value music as a means to serve others and enliven family life.

The long-term relationships between our students, parents, faculty and administrators are a testament to CYM’s unique ability to realize its mission. A feeling of kinship, between all of the people making concerted efforts to educate a capable young individual—your child—has been strengthened over the course of our many years together. For nearly 3 decades, we have watched toddlers grow and emerge into classical musicians and we have witnessed beginning players become self-assured and accomplished. Every person’s contribution is valued at CYM.

While some teachers would be satisfied with producing proficient instrumentalists, our vision for CYM students is much greater than this. In addition to learning to play their instruments well, students learn to be musically and culturally curious because of the focused, yet relaxed social setting inherent in the program. Whether it is participation in a lively discussion about phrasing or the history of a piece during group class, or meeting the requirements presented in the Young Artist program through community service and performance, time spent at CYM fosters character and a spirit of inquiry.


CYM offers the following programs:

  • Early Childhood Music and Movement – Our Musikgarten program offers children from birth to five a wonderful way to connect to other families, enjoy music together and begin learning this unique language.
  • Suzuki Studies – Dr. Suzuki’s ‘Nurtured by Love’ serves as the philosophical background for this program. Parents participate fully in their child’s education by attending each individual lesson and learning to play the instrument along with their child.
  • Foundations – Dr. Heyge’s Musikgarten serves as the philosophical foundation for this program. Students take a more independent role in their music education as they prepare for the introduction and application of an instrument.
  • Solo Studies – The Solo Studies program features one-on-one instruction in piano, violin, viola, cello, guitar or voice with an experienced faculty member who can provide instruction and motivation for your child.
  • Craft Your Music – Craft Your Music: Adults is our program for adult students ages 18 and up.
