The Focus of the YCM Band Program is to provide opportunities for young people to discover the value of playing an instrument, develop musical skills, and experience the enjoyment of playing and performing with an instrumental ensemble in a Christian atmosphere.
The YCM Band Program is a ministry: there are no charges for instruction.
Parents are responsible for providing their child’s instrument. (Information about rentals and purchases is available upon request.)
There is an annual $50.00 music rental fee to cover the cost of books and music used throughout the year. (Payment plans are available.)
