The Yamaha Method - " If you can sing it in solfège , you can play it on piano"

Engaging Classroom Materials


Yamaha Music School conduct lessons using textbooks, cd's, dvd's

and teaching materials suited to the contents and features of each

course.  Teaching know-how accumulated over long years and the

latest findings of R&D and teacher study groups are effectively

reflected in these textbooks and teaching materials to ensure they

conform to the instructional philosophy underlying the systematic

approach of the Yamaha Music Education System.

Class and lesson materials are not included in every course tuition.

COVID-19 status update: We provide on-line lessons in this fall semester, only Dr. Park and Mr. Daniel are available for face to face lessons this semester
