Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Yamaha Young Performing Artists (YYPA) competition, an annual program that has helped build the musical careers of outstanding young talent for more than 30 years.
Yamaha’s latest wind instrument, the Venova, is compact, durable, and great for a saxophone sound on the go. Check out Grace Kelly’s demonstration!
The Venova is intended to be super accessible and fun to play, without requiring years of practice and private lessons to learn. It’s a hybrid instrument that blends the simplicity of a recorder with the sound of a saxophone.
When Torakusu Yamaha repaired a broken reed organ back in 1887 and then successfully built one of his own, the Yamaha story began.
Yamaha’s Venova has a durable, compact body with an authentic sound. It’s the perfect option to take your music on the go!
Each year Yamaha Corporation’s Young Artist Services and Band and Orchestra Division honor and encourage young musicians through the Yamaha Young Performing Artists (YYPA) Competition
