The Yamaha method is a comprehensive music education system with three fundamental principles:


  • Timely Education: The Yamaha Method introduces music fundamentals to children at the time when their hearing capabilities are rapidly developing.

  • Group Learning: Yamaha group lessons enable children to make friends through music, develop cooperativeness, and deepen their understanding of music through participation in ensembles.

  • Emphasis on Creativity: Yamaha believes it is important to help the students develop their ability to express themselves by thinking freely.

Come join our Yamaha Music Classes at Ballantyne School of Music, and give your child the BEST start to their music education! We are so honored to have been selected as the Carolina's FIRST and ONLY Authorized YAMAHA Music School!

​For over 50 years, 6 million families worldwide have trusted Yamaha Music Education programs to inspire a lifelong love and appreciation of music learning, playing and creative expression for the young beginner. 

Music Wonderland (age 3 to 3 1/2):

Music Wonderland is a positively fun introduction to the world of music! Together with parents in a warm and nurturing setting, your toddler will enjoy singing, beginning keyboard activities, movement, and listening to music.  

The activities, books, and music are filled with colorful, playful images and sounds to bring your child's imagination to life. 

Music Wonderland is much more than the typical 'mommy/daddy and me' class (but just as much fun!).  It's the beginning of a multi-year curriculum backed by over 50 years experience.

Junior Music Course (ages 4-5 years):

Cultivating a sense of wonder, having fun, developing an eagerness to learn and grow...  this is what all parents wish for their child's early musical training. 

The Junior Music Course delivers on this promise, and much more. With Yamaha's proven and unique approach, your child will develop fundamental skills that will last a lifetime.  

At just the right time and in a very natural way (much like how children learn to speak and read), your child will learn ear training (how to identify musical sounds), sing with friends, play the keyboard/piano, read, and create music.  

Come see why Yamaha Music Classes are the BEST way to start your children on their musical journeys!

Young Musicians Course (ages 6-7 years):

If your child is in kindergarten through second grade (ages 6 or 7) and just starting music lessons for the first time, what's the best way to start? 

Piano lessons are a good choice, but what about singing, guitar, or something else? Wouldn't it be more fun if they could learn and play with other kids, like in a band? The Young Musicians Course may be the perfect fit. 

Like all Yamaha programs, this course is broad when compared to the typical piano lesson. Along with learning the keyboard/piano, your child will love singing, reading music, and performing with their classmates.

Children LOVE coming to their weekly music classes, singing and playing together as an ensemble and, at the conclusion of the course, performing in a recital-style format for their family and friends!

Tuition for Music Wonderland, Junior Music and Young Musicians Course is just $599. You have the option to pay tuition in full or in 4 equal monthly installments of $149.75, for your convenience. (A 10% discount is given, if tuition is paid in full at the time of registration.)

​Course materials are purchased separately. Each child will receive a free Ballantyne School of Music drawstring bag to carry their books to "school" when they enroll!
