Yamaha Education System
The Yamaha courses began in the mid-1950s in Japan under the direction of Mr. Gen’ichi Kawakami. Mr. Kawakami believed his company was responsible not only for making a quality product, but also for teaching customers how to use the product. Consequently, he established the non-profit Yamaha Music Foundation (YMF) in 1966 for the purpose of developing and promoting music education and music popularization activities internationally. YMF guides the development of the Yamaha Music Education System in 43 countries and also sponsors international events such as the Junior Original Concert (JOC).
I believe that every child
is born with the innate
ability to create music. By
starting their music education at
an early age, children are given not only the skill of playing but the gift of enjoying music to relax. I started East Valley Yamaha Music School in 1986 and I'm glad to say we've given thousands of children the gift of the joy in music, both for listening and creating.
Director and Owner
East Valley Yamaha Music School is committed to serving the community, and our community of music learners. We look for opportunities to bring our students into the spotlight and encourage them to share their talent to inspire others. Through participation at local festivals, visits to preschool and kindergarten
classrooms, and organizing community events, we hope to spread the joy of music far and wide.
