Yamaha - Young Musicians Course
for children 6 & 7 years old
Inspiring the FUTURE MUSICIAN in your family...
All locations, equipment and program content has been modified to keep students safe. Activity tables have been removed to create more space so students can keep a safe distance from each other. Each student will have their own plexiglass-keyboard-cubicle where all activities are to be done. We currently have a no-sharing-of-items and no-singing policy in effect.
All supplies needed for this program, including books, pencils and crayons, etc, will be issued at no extra charge to each student at the beginning of the school year. Face masks will be available for students who forget to bring their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). As our preference is to err on the side of caution, regardless of current government mandates, face masks or face shields are currently mandatory for all students, parents, teachers & office staff while in our facilities.
The Young Musicians Course is a great way for 6 to 7 year old children to begin a lifetime enjoyment of music. The three-year curriculum develops musicianship and keyboard playing skills with wonderful materials written specifically for beginners of this age.
During the weekly one hour lesson students will enjoy a variety of activities that include:
- Ear Training
- Rhythm Training
- Keyboard playing
- Music Theory
- Ensemble Training
- Improvisation & Composition
- Sight Reading & Verbalization
