YCMEA General Music

For many students, general music class is the beginning of a student’s musical journey. This is the place where students learn about the foundations of music and the importance of music in our society. This is often the place where a student begins to discover their passion for music and decides that they want to play an instrument or sing. Even if a student does not become a musician, general music provides an opportunity for students to learn about the beauty, passion and openness of an art that many of them would otherwise never discover. YCMEA fully supports the idea that General Music is a necessity in our schools and in the lives of our children. Many of our members teach general music as part of a well-rounded education. Our members have a variety of experience and teaching styles. If you have any questions or need more information on the importance of general music in our schools, please contact YCMEA.
