“Promoting the love and knowledge of music through teaching and performance.”
Yukon Registered Music Teachers offer lessons in piano, strings, orchestra, woodwinds, brass, percussion, voice and theories. Instruction varies across many musical styles, from classical to jazz.
Our teachers maintain high musical and academic qualifications. It is important that students receive quality music instruction from the beginning. Students are encouraged to achieve their best musical potential.
YRMTA is committed to furthering the art of music through programs that support teaching and performance while offering professional growth and networking opportunities for teachers and musicians. Master classes, workshops and private lessons with visiting musicians and instructors inspire students, teachers and parents.
The association presents a number of fine cultural events through public concerts and organized studio recitals. Many of the YRMTA members are active performers who contribute to the Yukon arts community.
YRMTA strives to educate and encourage teachers and students alike in their musical pursuits through its support of the following local programs and events:
Suzuki Strings Association –Camps and Workshops
RCME: Practical Exams
RCME: Theory Exams
Rotary Music Festival
Yukon Summer Music Camp
As well YRMTA cooperates with other musical organizations in the community and Territory.
From the small salon concerts of the late 60s to the present day association of dedicated teachers, YRMTA has become intrinsically woven into the cultural fabric of the Yukon.
Any musicians and teachers interested in becoming a member of the YRMTA, or parents and students seeking quality music instruction please contact us. A directory of current music teachers is available here.
