Please join Yamaha in helping music teachers make a difference! Because music education is at the core of everything we do, Yamaha has partnered with DonorsChoose.org to help music teachers acquire essential classroom supplies that help students succeed. Our aim at Yamaha is to create more music-makers, and a part of that is to help music teachers bring the benefits of a quality music education to every student.


"If you've ever been involved in band, you know that music is an important outlet for many students. Music gives students a voice and a way to express themselves in which other subjects cannot."
