The GMYS Preparatory Program is the foundation of our music education. Open to our youngest members with little or no previous musical experience the program strives to introduce our young musicians to the joys of playing a musical instrument, among a small group of peers within a private setting. Classes are 1 hour in length and are offered at 9 different locations throughout Miami-Dade County.

Instruments are also provided for each child. Students must be at least 5 years old to participate. If you would like to register your child for one of our Preparatory Programs listed below:
