Careers at Yamaha Music Australia


At Yamaha, we enrich lives through music.

Whether it’s bringing innovative new instruments to market, sharing the joy of music education, shaping the music performed in concert halls and recording studios, or immersing homes in theatre-quality sound — music is our way of life.

We believe music is what connects us all. Our people are at the heart of our success.

That’s why we’re creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. One that cultivates safety and respect, and which includes and represents the diversity of communities we operate in.



Yamaha’s history began in 1887 when its founder, Torakusu Yamaha, repaired a broken reed organ for his local school. He went on to pioneer the production of Western musical instruments in Japan.

Today, Yamaha is one of the most renowned brands associated with music. We pride ourselves on quality, and our products and services are known the world over for our dedication to excellence, authenticity and innovation.

What made you want to join Yamaha?

The name Yamaha plays a big role as it’s such an iconic and well-known brand, so that was definitely the first thing that got my attention. After that, I realised that my team was amazing and everyone’s always happy to help. I really love my job and the people I work with.


What’s the best part of your job?

Variety. I expected to work here for maybe 2–3 years, but 16 years later I am still here and still excited. A big part of this is the evolution of the company and the people around me. At first I was all about gear, now I am passionate about helping the people around me grow and be the best they can be — and letting them teach me and inspire me to do the same for myself.


How do you find the culture at Yamaha?

Friendly, engaging individuals working passionately towards a common goal of achieving the Yamaha Way.


Has Yamaha offered you flexibility in your role?

There’s a great deal of flexibility in both my role and the responsibilities I undertake, as well as where and when I complete the work depending on my current workload and home life requirements.


Do you want to help us springboard Yamaha from its respected, established brand status into a vibrant future; to be involved in dynamic change, reshaping and re-envisioning the company to bring the joy of music to the world in new ways? If so, we would love to hear from you and we look forward to soon welcoming you into the Yamaha family!
