Through our facility, we offer a variety of tuition-free programs to our neighborhood families and community members. Our Community Music Academy is open to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 and strives to be a central space in the community for students to learn, explore, and experience making music. Classes include separate beginner and intermediate sessions for brass and woodwinds, orchestral strings and guitar, as well as guitar ensemble, harp ensemble, and combined intermediate orchestra. Instruments are provided to students who are interested in participating and do not currently have access to one. We also offer classes in Music Technology and Production as well as workshops, masterclasses, concerts, and neighborhood events.
3rd-12th GradeMusic Technology and Media Arts are offered to grades 3rd - 12 at our partner schools. After-school, weekend and summer classes are offered at our South Central campus. Classes progressively build skills from the basics of beatmaking and DJing, through mastery of video and audio production software and hardware.
YMF hosts a wide variety of workshops and concerts that are free and open to the community.
