We’re on a mission to inspire the next generation of musicians. That’s why we’ve invested 60 years building on proven methods to promote music education around the world.

You’ll find 600 Yamaha Music Schools dotted around Europe teaching over 50,000 students how to play an instrument. Whether attending weekly face-to-face lessons at one of our locations or being one of our remote students progressing online, our tuition can be tailored to the customer’s demand.

There’s an element of joy at the heart of everything we develop, which encourages students of every age to produce their own thoughts and ideas in music. The inner fulfilment that comes from learning and mastering an instrument is contagious, and we capture those feelings every day with a wide range of creative teaching courses and materials.

A WORLD OF TALENT Yamaha Music Schools showcase the talents of young musicians at local, national and international level. Come and discover how we could put your child centre stage…

START SMALL

Children start to take an active interest in music between the ages of 17 months and 4 years, and can even understand noise levels and tonal qualities during the first three months of life. In order to nurture the little ones’ creative talents, we provide a number of sessions based on group singing, playing, listening and discovery just as they’re getting started in the world.

CREATIVE GROUP SESSIONS

The Yamaha Music Education System is a 10-year structured curriculum aimed at pre-school and school–aged children. But rather than just teaching an instrument, a big part of our focus is on having fun with learning and developing creative potential. That’s why we run open groups allowing students with different abilities to flourish, showing them the value of playing together as well as individual expression.

HANDS-ON LEARNING

Sometimes, a child just needs to start playing - so that’s exactly what we let them do. We take an approach that encourages hands-on learning over musical theory, focusing on playing in small groups to help them discover the values of technique, improvisation, and performing together. It’s a place where creativity really does come alive.

INSTRUMENTAL AND VOCAL COURSES

A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY

Within our global network we’ve helped students all over the world find their voice or express their talent for playing guitar, piano, drums or any musical instrument which inspires. From the earliest age, our expert Yamaha Music School teachers help develop a lifetime love of music.
