Why TYSA

At TYSA, we empower young musicians and challenge them to joyfully pursue excellence – artistically and beyond.

We know you want to see your child discover their fullest potential. So do we! For 60 years, we’ve seen the transformation that mastering a classical instrument does for a young person’s confidence. 

But too often young people aren’t able to receive the support and training they need to make that a reality. Maybe their instruction needs a step up, or perhaps they’re struggling to connect with their peers at school. At TYSA, we provide a nurturing and inclusive environment for your child to blossom not just as a musician, but as a person – because every young person is worth our full investment to become all they can be. We have 60 years of experience guiding students to their full potential! 

We want you to nail your concert performance AND find joy in music. We want you to focus and grow during rehearsals AND make unforgettable friendships. And we want you to master your instruments AND grow into the future leader you’re meant to be.
