The Yamaha Master Educator Collective: Learn from Distinguished Teachers


UPDATE JANUARY 21, 2021: We are excited to announce that David Cutler, Serona EltonDonny Gruendler, Jeffrey Nytch and Omar Thomas are the newest members of the esteemed Yamaha Master Educator Collective. 

You have a long list of goals when you enter the classroom each day: Be a better music educator. Help students succeed. Feel inspired and empowered. We want to help you achieve all of your goals. 

Music teachers have long relied on Yamaha for quality instruments and for its lineup of world-renowned Yamaha Performing Artists who present more than 600 clinics, workshops and masterclasses each year.

Now, music teachers can look to an all-star group of 20 Yamaha Master Educators who will focus on impactful professional development opportunities and artistic music collaborations.

The roster of Yamaha Master Educators covers a range of school levels and expertise, so music teachers can access mentorship, expert advice and tried-and-true tips on topics such as recruitment, engaging students, selecting the perfect repertoire, making rehearsals more meaningful, advanced conducting techniques and more.

The Yamaha Master Educator Collective has been designed to bring these elite educators in front of as many music teachers as possible. The Yamaha Master Educators are available to work on-site with music teachers during staff development, as well as speak and conduct appointments with state music education associations, district meetings for music teachers and fine arts departments, districtwide in-service days, and clinics at schools.

The Yamaha Master Educator Collective is the latest way in which Yamaha shows its support for music education. Yamaha invests more money, time and staff in its commitment to music education than any other instrument manufacturer.
