Music lessons are available across a wide variety of instruments, as well as lessons in voice, theory and musical theatre. Whether you’re just starting your musical journey or looking for a refresher course, all are welcome. The YRSM Team is comprised of a remarkable team of teaching and Administrative staff. They are a highly qualified and skilled group experienced to deal with your or your child's music education needs. They have full Child Protection screening and are required to undertake annual training in Child Protection. Staff are also actively engaged in professional development and are frequent presenters and attendees at our concerts series. Many of the YRSM’s teaching staff are also busy professional musicians performing in their own bands both locally and across the State.
School Programs & Group Lessons
This program gives students the opportunity to learn an instrument in an individual or shared situation at their school. With the approval of school principals and co-operation from the staff of the schools, lessons are held weekly for 20 or 30 minutes during school time. As well as providing individual lessons, tutors visit the surrounding towns of Boorowa, Cowra, Harden/Murrumburrah, Temora and Grenfell to provide individualized lessons and ensemble experiences. Tutors also visit outlying small schools to deliver a separate curriculum-based program, whilst conducting instrumental, choir, percussion and drum corps activities in Young district schools, both government and non-government.
Ensembles, Bands & Choirs
We have a number of ensembles to give students of all ages and interests the experience of playing or singing with others. They include:- Jazz & Stage Bands, choirs, Flute, Brass, String and Clarinet ensembles and The Accidentals (Cello).
Early Childhood Music
We conduct many programs in local pre-schools or early learning centres to engender a love of music and promote music education at an early age. Our dynamic and stimulating classes are great fun and operate in a happy, caring and welcoming environment nurturing their creativity and imagination and most importantly instilling a love of music.
