The materials are made up of a variety of exercises, and in addition to the techniques required for playing pop styles, the curriculum is designed so that the student can learn chord names and song arrangements. It gives the student the tools to play their favorite melodies with their own original arrangements, and enables them to play along with other people in a band.

Yamaha’s Unique Program

1. Printed Lesson Material + Streaming Audio

Yamaha’s unique curriculum has been designed with the philosophy of wanting everyone to enjoy music. Our instruction is based around original curriculum and teaching materials we’ve developed through more than 60-years’ experience. We also offer realistic audio accompaniment developed exclusively for our lessons that you can play along with, like in live performances, and for home practice.

2. Individual, Group and Online Lesson Styles

Our lesson formats are tailored to the course, from group lessons (held with an appropriately small number of students) where you can relax with your fellow students having the same interests and enjoy ensemble playing, as well as individual lessons that progress according to your personal wishes and goals, and online lessons where you can receive instruction without going to the lesson venue (suitable online environment required).

3. Yamaha Grade Examination

Yamaha Grade Examinations help you as a music learner to confirm your musical abilities and encourage you to gain well-rounded musical skills, so that you can fully enjoy creating and performing music.
