Children should listen to music even prenatal, especially Bach and Mozart, to build increased synapses in their brains. Preschoolers who participated in music lessons including keyboards, showed a 45% increase in spatial reasoning over the course of one year as opposed to music lessons with singing only and computer classes (Fran Rauscher, USC).

Because a child’s hearing is at its best between age 3 - 7 1/2, this is the optimal time to begin music study.

The Yamaha curriculum for 3-year-olds includes; singing, storytelling, solfège, rhythm, imagination, listening and keyboard playing with classmates and parents. A three-year-old can absorb important musical concepts long before they are performance ready on an instrument. In fact, most children who start Yamaha at age 3 develop perfect pitch.

All Yamaha courses start with a group lesson and then add a private lesson as a child’s coordination begins to develop - usually age six to seven. Yamaha’s comprehensive musicianship courses teach children to understand fully the language of music; playing piano, singing, playing in ensembles, improvising and creating their own music through composition. Becoming involved in music for life is a wonderful and satisfying experience for every person. For parents who want to create a beautiful and full life for their children giving them a Yamaha Education will allow them to enjoy and share music for a lifetime.

Music increases overall health, mental, and emotional wellbeing. For more information about our school please visit our website at
