What Does the CBY Community Say?

5/5
We joined CBY in the fall and I was shocked at how quickly the Director and instructors knew my daughter and family. Even during a pandemic you can feel the community vibe. The instructors are phenomenal, friendly, and you can feel the quality in what they teach. My daughter loves it and I look forward to taking other programs with CBY!

My daughter started in the Tot Dance program this fall and it has been a wonderful experience so far! She has learned a great deal over the past few months and looks forward to it every week. We are really grateful to be a part of this awesome community. Their passion for what they do comes through constantly. Thanks, CBY team!

I can't say enough wonderful things about CBY Music and all of the programs they offer. My children have been a part of the CBY Music family (voice, theatre, camps, concerts & skill development programs) for a couple of years now and it has been amazing to watch the passion and growth in confidence both kids have been developing!

❤️ THANK YOU ❤️ to everyone who came out to our very first Scholarship Fund Summer Market, and an extra special thank you to our team of incredible volunteers (including an army of studio moms), our CBY families who donated generously and the amazing folks at Birmingham Consulting!

We raised a grand total of $947 today that will go towards making quality arts education accessible to young people.

Now, who wants to help us get that number to $1000?! 💪🏻 Every little bit helps! Our e-transfers are open for additional donations and can be sent to payments@cbymusic.com.

We love this town, we love our team, we love this community! Thank you again for your generosity and for spending the morning with us at CBY.

Also, watch this space! In the coming days, we will be extending our fundraising efforts even further with an online market on our Facebook page! More details on that soon.
