Become part of a unique family

With our brass, woodwind and string line-up, there are so many different genres at your child's fingertips.

All of our student instruments take inspiration from our professional models, expertly designed with quality materials to create a beautiful tone and immerse your child in their musical journey.

CLARINETS WITHOUT COMPROMISE

Our lightweight ABS clarinets are a beginner’s dream. Not only do they sound great, their free-blowing design makes for a super-smooth playing experience.

Our models are made to start and stay in tune, while the less safety-prone students can rest easy with a robust case to survive any knocks and bumps.

WHERE TO START?
The outstanding 255 Series ABS resin instrument delivers a warm, full-bodied tone, with adjustable thumb-rests for smaller hands to easily hold the instrument.

WHERE NEXT?
For those looking to step up and take their expression further, the YCL-450 offers stunning professional sound and a new bell design that improves intonation and projection. The body is also made from grenadilla wood and features silver-plated keys.

TAKE ON THE TRUMPET

Portable? Check.
Lightweight? Check.
For the trumpeter-in-training, it doesn’t get much better than Yamaha’s popular student range. And thanks to the richness of its pitch-perfect sound, every model is perfect for stealing the show at band practise.

CHOOSE YOUR INSTRUMENT
Our student trumpets couldn’t be easier to use, with an ultra-responsive lighter bell just one of the perks that we’ve redesigned to put the player first. Whatever your child chooses, you can relax knowing they’re getting the best instrument to help them learn, progress, and inspire.

POISED TO PLAY

With Yamaha’s introductory violins, every musician is sure to make a big impression. Each model is handcrafted using the same traditional methods as high-end violins, blending beautiful tones and outstanding durability to give beginners the perfect start to their musical journey. A case, bow and rosin are all included; all that’s left is for them to get playing.

RICH VARIETY OF VIOLINS

Getting the correct sizing for a violin is crucial. Make sure your child is comfortable in their grip, arm extension and motion, so they’ll have the freedom to create with confidence.

SOMETHING FOR EVERY PLAYER
You’ll find the same high-quality finish in our beginner models as you would in our professional violins. Each one is easy to tune and available in a number of sizes, so no matter how early your child catches the music bug, there’ll be something to get them playing.

FIND THE RIGHT VIOLA

Violas are a special member of the musical community. They’re larger and lower in pitch than violins - making them an essential part of any orchestra - and seeing one up close really is a sight to behold.

CHOOSE YOUR INSTRUMENT
Yamaha’s violas come in a range of sizes to suit all beginners. Whether they’re just starting out or exploring new musical horizons, they’ll be playing on the finest materials with an outstanding tone.
