Prospective Parent or Adult Student?
Consider a Four Week Trial!

A no-obligation trial at CYM comprises 4 weeks of instruction in the CYM program of your choice.

For parents, this period of time allows your child the full experience of a CYM student in your chosen program, as well as allows for customization of the instruction and curriculum path, development of your child's musical goals, and establishment of a teacher/student relationship.

For the adult student, a 'Time Wave' trial is an opportunity to evaluate private instruction of the highest quality. On the Time Wave page, click the 'Solo Studies Trial' link located beneath the 'Prospective Student?' heading.

A Day at CYM — a video introduction

The Center for Young Musicians develops a community of students with liberated ability, refined character, and a life-long love of music through a comprehensive, long-term curriculum emphasizing an early-start, an expert faculty, a dynamic support staff, and a mutual commitment between the families and the school.

Because we know every child is unique, our programs can be customized to fit each child's need. To better understand the opportunities CYM provides your child, please visit the 'New to CYM?' section (above) — the accompanying links lead to a thorough explanation of each program CYM offers.
