Young Musicians Unite’s mission is to give underserved middle and high school students a voice through music by providing free in-school and after school music education. By collaborating with schools that have limited or no music programs, YMU will educate and unite young musicians in the Miami-Dade County community and raise awareness about the importance of music education.
What We Do
Since 2013, Young Musicians Unite (YMU) has been dedicated to providing free in-school and after school music programs to South Florida’s youth. Under the leadership of Sammy Gonzalez, YMU engages youth from at-risk communities with limited or non-existent music programs. Depending on their individual school, students who participate in YMU become members of a Classical Guitar ensemble, a Jazz ensemble, or a Student Rock Band. The YMU program ensures that students learn the fundamentals of music including theory, reading, songwriting, competition, and performance. Classes are led by qualified professional teachers, and aided by peer to peer mentors and visiting guest musicians. Without exception, all of the equipment, music, performance and teaching fees are waived - YMU students do not financially contribute at all to their music education.By giving students a voice through music, YMU is building strong and responsible community members and leaders.
