Junior Original Concert
What is ‘Junior Original Concert-JOC’?
The Junior Original Concert (JOC) features Yamaha Music School students aged 15 and younger from around the world performing their own original compositions. Founded in 1972 on this philosophy, JOC activities have spread to over 40 countries around the world.
JOC is the realization of Yamaha Music School's educational philosophy, “To foster the musical sensitivity that everyone is born with, to develop the ability to enjoy creating and playing music of their own and ultimately share the joy of music with anyone”. Also, JOC is being continuously developed as an activity to realize the infinite potential of children and promote their growth.
JOC celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for your support and enthusiasm during the last 50 years. We will continue to conduct JOC to inspire and encourage the next generation of children as they lead by expressing their individuality through music that transcends national boundaries.
