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 over a decade, 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 going to see a great humanist and performer like Mstislav Rostropovitch, cellist, in a special master class, time spent at CYM fosters character and a spirit of inquiry.
