Young musicians work hard to become the best players they can be, but all of that time in the practice room can be a solitary endeavor. The Brooklyn Youth Music Project offers classical and jazz students an opportunity to experience the unique joy of ensemble playing in a collaborative, disciplined and creative environment.
A good music ensemble player is like a good sports ”team player:“ In addition to building musical skills, each individual must develop the ability to work well with others – a whole new skill set that helps lay the groundwork for many aspects of a rewarding life.
BYMP reaches out to all young musicians in the Brooklyn Community to create a diverse and welcoming culture, where mutual respect and self-discipline become the foundation for excellence in training and performance. A happy by-product of this shared musical experience - our Orchestra, Jazz and Summer Camp musicians develop lifelong friendships. Join us!
