How is the YAMAHA school different from other music programs?

  • More Lessons: Our semesters are 18 weeks long due to the curriculum requirements of the Yamaha course.  Other programs and schools are usually 15 or less.
  • Incomparable Materials: An international method in 40 countries with a 50-year history, our group Yamaha Method (YMES) classes come with incomparable materials, including CDs, books, workbooks, instructional DVDs, practice binders, and blue Yamaha bookbags.
  • Great Teachers: All of our faculty members are highly skilled educators and performers.  Most teachers hold a master's degree (MM) or a doctorate (DMA) in music from top conservatories. Most importantly, our Yamaha Music Education System (YMES) teachers are certified by Yamaha and are required to complete a rigorous training schedule and ongoing development. They must also pass a comprehensive music grade examination, which is required of all Yamaha teachers worldwide.
