“YamahaMusic School : Make Waves”
Yamaha Music Courses began in the mid 1950’s in Japan under the direction of Genichi Kawakami, the president of Yamaha Corporation. Mr. Kawakami established the non-profit Yamaha Music Foundation (YMF) in 1966 for the purpose of developing and promoting music education and popularization activities internationally.
YMF guides the evolution of YMES in 40 countries with continuous research into child development and new teaching techniques. It also sponsors events such as the prestigious International Junior Original Concert (IJOC).
Lessons are taught to a group of students (typically 8 to 10 per class) and, in the case of the Junior Music Course, one parent attends with each child. This format motivates children and provides an opportunity to develop ensemble skills and cooperation within a supportive community of friends and parents. With their peers, children become part of a musical team making music together. With their teacher and parents, the group becomes a musical community.
At Yamaha Music School, our group lessons offer highly effective instructions and meaningful interaction between students. As a promise of quality excellence, every instructor must undergo training before conducting a class. We strive to promote a love for all kinds of music across all ages
