Structured Music Education
System for Children & Adults
Designed to meet the unique needs and developmental stages of each age group, Yamaha programs develop each student’s comprehensive musical ability in an environment that inspires a love of music and a lifetime of active music participation.
Yamaha develops musical skills with three fundamental principles:
INTRODUCING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSIC FROM THE START
In order for children to enjoy music and to absorb and understand the given material easily, we believe it is best to give them appropriate guidance in accordance with the degree of their physical and mental development. Based upon this concept of timely education, the Yamaha method introduces music fundamentals to children at the time when their hearing capabilities are rapidly developing.
WE ALL LEARN BETTER IN GROUPS
Group lessons have many advantages that enable children to enjoy rich musical experiences such as making friends through music, developing cooperativeness and deepening understanding of music through participation in ensembles. For this purpose, Yamaha has adopted a method whereby students can listen and play in a group, learning music while enjoying it.
Emphasis on Creativity
LEARNING THROUGH CREATING
In order to enable students to develop their creative capabilities, it is important to help them develop the ability to express themselves by thinking freely. We hope to help them acquire and enhance sensitivity and imagination, which are both sources of creativity, through our comprehensive system of music education.
What our students & parents are saying
As a former Yamaha student currently studying Music and Concurrent Education at Queen’s University, I doubt I’d be here if it weren’t for the solid musical foundation I received from Yamaha. I was involved in Yamaha programs from the ages of 3-16, and the Yamaha teaching method was instrumental in developing my musicianship. In addition, part of what inspired me to go into Concurrent Education was working as a practice coach– it was an amazing experience to get to work with young children and help them learn.
Achilles has grown from a little boy who had to climb to the bench to play his piano to a teenager who is composing his own music. Yamaha played a fundamental role in making music a part of his life. As a parent, there are no words to express how much I’ve enjoyed watching him exploring his learning journey under Yamaha’s guidance. I can’t thank the school enough for enriching our lives in such an important and beautiful way.
Junior Original Concert is the best thing any Yamaha student can have, what a rich performing experience it is for a child in that tender age. We still remember and appreciate all the good things everybody at Yamaha did for us. It was 10 years of fun and excellent learning experience for my daughter; something she’ll remember and cherish for the rest of her life. We still talk about it once in a while and she feels that her ties are still strong with Yamaha as she still goes to the school for lessons every Saturday when she’s not racing as a competitive swimmer.
We sometimes make our own music pieces and when we have no idea how to do it, our teacher never tells us “do it like this” or gives us the answer. That’s why we have to think of it ourselves and learn ourselves. I have to think really hard and come up with my own music. I really, really have to use my head but I learn a lot of new things so I like it. It’s like a treasure hunt and going on a mission to find it. It makes me happy.
The staff at Yamaha Music School are wonderful. The team at the front desk are so friendly, so welcoming. Thank you for all their hard work to be there every day!
The Yamaha program is well thought out and includes all aspects of music. It is fun and my children enjoy it.
