Description

Young Musicians of Alamance (YMA) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that offers instrumental and general music education to elementary, middle, and high school students. We offer general music, string lessons (violin, viola, cello, bass), wind band (flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone), modern band (ukulele, bass, keyboard, drums), bucket drumming, small group classes (piano, ukulele, guitar, percussion) song, and movement activities for all levels of players. ‚ÄčIn addition to music instruction, Young Musicians of Alamance focuses on important social values such as self-respect, empathy, sharing of assistance and resources, mutual support and caring, self-discipline, and teamwork.

YMA follows the philosophy of El Sistema, which focuses on developing each child's sense of social-emotional learning, musicianship, and sense of community inclusion. The majority of our students attend schools where 85% or more students qualify for free lunch. Students that qualify for free or reduced lunch receive free music lessons. If a student is not on free or reduced lunch, they may participate in the program for a small fee. We envision becoming a leading integral community resource in developing youth of all economic, social, and cultural backgrounds as excellent musicians and successful community members.
