Music Courses for Children

The gift of music

At Yamaha, we believe that music is for everyone. That’s why we have been providing quality music education globally to people of all ages since 1966.

It’s never too early to start, so our courses for children are fun-filled and enriching. Yamaha’s music curricula are designed to engage pre-schoolers and school-age children so that they develop a life-long love for music. Through a combination of imagination and exploration, your child will learn to embrace music spontaneously.

The philosophy of Yamaha Music School is to nurture the musicality that everyone is born with; develop their ability to create and play music; and encourage the joy of sharing music. To achieve this, we developed the Yamaha Music Education System (YMES) with 3 unique features: comprehensive music education, timely education, and group lessons.

Comprehensive music education aims to develop the abilities to play what you hear as well as written scores. The abilities required to play what you hear are the ability to recognize the sounds you hear, to sing it in solfege, and to play the melody and accompaniment – being able to sing what you hear, and play what you sing.

Timely education refers to learning at the appropriate physical and mental development stage. It’s Yamaha’s principle belief that the golden age to build a strong foundation in accurate pitching, rhythmic and instrumental training is from 4 to 6 years old because at this stage, the hearing ability of young children is developing rapidly. That’s why young children naturally and effortlessly enjoy and absorb music.

Group lessons facilitate the sharing of the joy of music. Playing in an ensemble with friends allows them to have a rich musical experience and deepens the understanding of music. Yamaha believes that group lessons are the most effective way to stimulate the emotional and mental development of young children.
