What Parents & Students Say.....

"In short, we've been impressed: the program included ear training, solfege singing,and rhythm training, in addition to piano instruction. We loved how the group setting and parent participation were integral to the early curriculum.  In the last four years, we’ve had so many wonderful experiences at Yamaha."

"We’ve enjoyed 3 years of classes with you and appreciated your efforts to make it a fun and supportive experience. As a parent, it’s been exciting to see my daughter go through the learning process…"

"Yamaha teachers are amazing, dedicated people with top-notch credentials, musical careers of their own and a real commitment to teaching. They are incredibly generous with their time, and they have never failed to challenge and inspire my daughter. There is a real community here. Through the amazing faculty and nurturing environment at Yamaha, my daughter has excelled beyond what we had imagined possible, due to the support and coaching she received here. She has the confidence to help her school's string teacher on the days when she comes to teach. She has developed stage presence, poise, and confidence, all thanks to the Yamaha School of Boston and their dedicated faculty. 

Quite simply, the Yamaha School services our community providing an educational environment that makes both students and parents feel comfortable and valued."

“Thanks to all the Yamaha Boston staff who coached, coordinated and led a wonderful concert experience today!  We were present for two concerts and enjoyed them both so much!  We are truly fortunate to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to children's appreciation for music."
