Benefits of msyp training

Our Marin Symphony Youth Programs include common elements that we believe are essential to developing musicianship on any instrument:
  • Refining manuscript reading skills, which include accurate note recognition, rhythm and dynamics interpretation, and tonal key recognition
  • Learning the technical craft of producing a beautiful tone on one’s chosen instrument
  • Gaining exposure to the classical music repertoire
  • Developing the self-discipline to maintain a steady, independent music practice
  • Becoming facile with auditions through experience
  • Learning how to work and blend in groups
  • Becoming adept at performance
