Exciting New Program! Debuting in January 2021, YOPBC’s Music Prep Academy​.

This affordable instrumental music program has been designed for children with no prior music training due to limited or no access to expensive private instruction.

YOPBC is specifically reaching out to children from schools where school-based instrumental music programs have been eliminated, and children enrolled in private schools, charter schools, religious schools and home-based learning where music is not currently part of the curriculum.

No audition is required.

Students will meet on Sundays during the school year, starting in January 2021, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach.

The YOPBC Music Prep Academy begins with the basics. Children progress through the program until they eventually can audition into one of YOPBC’s four orchestras!

Each child has the choice of learning a:

• String instrument: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass. The child must be at least 5-years-old.

• Brass instrument:  Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba. The child must be at least 10-years-old, with secondary incisor teeth in place.
