MUSIC LESSONS

Music is a catalyst for lifelong learning. Studies show that music appreciation lessons significantly improve reading comprehension scores. No doubt, music does so much more to enhance our lives. So sing. Strum. Make the difference within the walls of your YMCA.

At the Y we believe that music is an expressive outlet for many people, we want to foster this belief through our new music lesson program. Currently our program will be offering piano, guitar and voice

lessons. Piano lessons can start at age 4 ½ and guitar at age 6, voice lessons vary based on ability. The lessons we provide are onsite at the Fulton Family YMCA and our flexible with scheduling to meet the needs of the student. Lessons must be paid prior to the start of the lesson. To register for your music lessons please stop at the front desk.
