COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 YACM PROGRAM UPDATE 

Updated April 23, 2020

Due top COVID-19, we are returning calls and inquiries on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am - 1pm. 

 

Young Artists Conservatory of Music is committed to the physical and emotional health of our community and the region’s youth. Our immediate priority is that all our YACM family and surrounding community are healthy and free from COVID-19.  

 

YACM is grateful to our Teaching Artists for their continued commitment to teach music and arts to young people under less than ideal circumstances.  They have been volunteering, spending upwards to 4x more time with online interfaces, learning new technology and working to keep the children of YACM inspired and progressing. We also want to extend our deepest gratitude for Joe Hansen and Michael Havens, both USAF Band of the Golden West Musicians, for volunteering to teach master classes in guitar and percussion. 

 

Private and small group students who have continued through online lessons have learned many new pieces, and explored new ways to think about music and their own musicianship.  Most importantly, teachers report that they are seeing significant increases in independent learning, as students are taking more personal ownership of their practice time and lesson readiness. 

 

PROGRAM STATUS

Updated April 24, 2020

 

Private Lessons, theory Classes, and most small group electives will resume ONLINE

May 1 to complete the season through June 15.

The development of children matters. We are working to reframe our programs to provide the children of Solano County with experiences that continue to help them recognize and pursue their potential. Now, more than ever, children and youth need to participate in experiences that reduce isolation, overcome anxieties, and develop their cognitive, emotional, and creative capacities.   Every day has experiences that impact the way children understand themselves and the world around them.  

 

YACM is committed to working with only the most qualified Teaching Artists for the development of children. Because we are highly trained and experienced, we know how to adapt effective learning experiences to ensure children progress.
