Yamaha Music Education System
Starting in Japan in 1954, there are now over 38,000 Yamaha Music Schools around the world.
Since its inception, the Yamaha Music Education System has graduated more than 5,500,000 students with the gift of music that lasts a lifetime.
Systematic Education System
Through extensive research and experimentation, Yamaha has developed its own materials, including textbooks and exam system.
Our curriculum was designed with the stages of a child’s development in mind to inspire and motivate children to learn effectively according to their needs and interests.
Children learn effectively in a group through making music in ensemble, performing in front of a friendly audience and experiencing the joy of making music together.
Yamaha develops well-rounded musicians with good aural and rhythmic sense. Students are able to do more than just playing an instrument. As they mature in the program, children can improvise and compose their own music with ease.
