Yamaha Advanced Courses produce extremely accomplished and musical pianists, composers, arrangers and performers who have a deep passion for, and understanding of, a wide variety of music and musical styles. The students are able to apply the unique skills learnt in these courses to any musical situation.
Yamaha Advanced Courses' students sit for high-level student exams in the Yamaha Grade Examination System, with some students also completing teacher level exams. They continue to compose longer and more complex compositions and as well as performing in class and city Junior Original Concerts, some students are also invited to perform their compositions in overseas concerts such as the Asia Pacific Junior Original Concert and International Junior Original Concert held each year.
Many graduates of Yamaha Advanced Courses have gone on to develop life-long careers in music – as performing artists (both here in Australia and overseas), composers, members of world-class orchestras and highly regarded music educators.
