Young Musicians Unite provides free, consistent music programming to underserved communities in Miami. Through peer to peer mentoring, YMU engages students of different backgrounds and brings them together through a shared passion for music. By collaborating with schools to bring music programming to students, YMU addresses education gaps to develop leaders, boost personal development and inspire self-confidence.
Young Musicians Unite provides comprehensive music programming for 500+ students from underserved schools and communities across Miami. We engage our at-risk youth through 21 diverse music programs including Rock Ensembles, Small Jazz Bands, Large Jazz Bands, Horn Ensembles, Rhythm Section Workshops, and Drumline.
YMU recruits and trains the highest caliber performing musicians, enabling them to reinvest back into their community. By providing training, resources, and educational programs, we ensure the continuation and re-introduction of music programs into our schools providing a solution to budget cuts and rising teacher turnover rates across our nation.
