The Yamaha Young Musicians Course differs from many others. Unlike private lessons, this class is a group class. Developed and used for more than 50 years, Yamaha has continued to evolve and grow this group class through research in the U.S., Japan, Canada and many other countries around the world.
The Young Musicians Course, geared for 6 to 9 year olds, allows children to participate in group and individual activities that teach basic musical skills and encourage independence, creativity and self-expression. The course appeals to the imagination of a young mind and becomes an integral part of your child's growth.
The curriculum focuses on the use of a keyboard. However, the class activities are designed to develop a well-rounded musician, allowing children to use these skills with any instrument. The students who continue through the Yamaha program are often better musicians because of the skills they learn in this class. By having group classes and ensembles, it teaches children to listen to all parts and classmates. This helps them excel in music classes and in school because they are required to listen to the group as a whole and blend with each other.
Course activities include ensemble playing (group performance), repertoire (keyboard pieces), keyboard harmony and technique, ear training, sight singing and theory.
