JUNIOR MUSIC COURSE
Yamaha teachers are eager to work with both children and parents. They are committed to provide rewarding musical experiences for students. These rigorously trained musicians have passed demanding tests in musicianship and performance skills while also receiving training by the Yamaha Music Education System.
Once your child has completed the Junior Music Course, he or she will take part in a "Fundamental Skills Survey" to confirm his or her musical acheievement. Teachers refer to these results to place students in the proper advanced courses of study such as the Junior Extension Course and Junior Advanced Course. As these students develop advanced musical skills, they are encouraged to perform and compose their own music through programs such as the "Junior Original Concert."
When you enroll your child in the Junior Music Course, you are assured of an excellent international course of musical study. Yamaha has invested over 50 years of music education research in dozens of countries throughout the world. Yamaha Music Schools have introduced more than 6 million people worldwide to the joy of music.
