Courses

Young Musician Course

Young Musicians Course (YMC - beginners age 6-8) is founded on the belief that every child loves music.  During this three-year program, children participate in activities that teach basic musical skills and encourage independence, creativity and self-expression.  The course appeals to the imagination of a young mind and becomes an integral part of your child's growth.

For beginning musicians ages 6-8, class activities include ear training, keyboard repertoire, keyboard harmony, music theory, exposure to arranging, singing, ensemble playing, and improvisation.

Course length: 3 years
Class schedule: One 50 minute class per week
Student Age: To enroll in YMC, children must have reached their 6th birthday by September 1st for fall semester classes and by February 1st for a spring semester start. This requirement helps ensure that children are enrolled in a course for which they are developmentally ready. Keyboard Purchase: All YMC students must have access to a keyboard for practicing. 

Curriculum
Musicianship is taught through the use of a keyboard. Children are immersed in:

Singing
Ear training
Repertoire (keyboard pieces)
Ensemble playing (group performance)
Keyboard harmony
Arranging
Keyboard technique
Sight singing
Sight playing
Theory

Upon Completion of the Course
Once your child has completed the Young Musicians Course (YMC), he or she can take the Yamaha Student Grade 9 Exam to confirm his or her musical achievement. Teachers refer to the exam results to correctly place students in advanced courses of study such as the Junior Advanced Course (JAC). As the children develop more advanced musical skills, they are also encouraged to express themselves by performing and composing their own music through programs like Junior Original Concert (JOC).
