The Young Musician's University provides every student with The YMU Advantage packed with tools, resources, and information to maximize their growth and development. With YMU's Learning Management System, you can monitor your child's progress in their course, see what they are learning, preview lesson content, and communicate with your child's instructor. Our platform works seamlessly with powerful integrated software to enhance your child's learning experience! Students and parents also receive a digital subscription to The YMU Collective, our digital magazine that provides you with YMU happenings and other information about family, music, and the arts.
Music education is an exercise in patience, discipline, and perseverance. YMU does not take a microwave approach to learn a musical instrument, and just like sports, it will take effort. The YMU Advantage provides our students with the tools and resources that support YMU's five foundational elements: Learn, Explore, Create, Share and Connect. These elements shape the culture of YMU as our students develop a firm musical foundation that will last a lifetime. This is The YMU Advantage!
