About us and our passions

We are passionate about music and education.

We believe that everyone is musical, but not everyone has or had the opportunity to experience music education in a way that works in harmony with the natural process of cognitive development.

We know that musical education has a key impact on the development of the same area in the brain that is responsible for abstract thinking and precision.

To meet the needs of parents, young people and adults, we have created a unique place on the musical map of Poznań.

The Yamaha Poznań Music School implements a programme of teaching in accordance with the Yamaha educational method, which has been used worldwide for almost 50 years.

This method reflects the natural acquisition processes of native languages, through learning to play musical instruments.

We are convinced that this method provides the most important aspects of music: joy and the opportunity to share it with our loved ones.
