Yamaha Music Education System
The Yamaha Music Education System is designed to meet the unique needs of each age group with a comprehensive musical program that inspires a love of music and a lifetime of active music participation. The Yamaha Music System is based on the fundamental principles of:
Introducing Music Fundamentals Early
Based upon this concept of timely education, the Yamaha method introduces music fundamentals to children at the time when their hearing capabilities are rapidly developing.
The Yamaha System recognizes that students benefit from group lessons. The advantages of group lessons include peer motivation, making friends through music, and developing cooperativeness and deepening understanding of music through participation in ensembles.
For students to develop creativity in their music it is important to encourage free expression; we promote this by enhancing sensitivity and imagination, which are both source of creativity.
