Since 2013, YMU has been dedicated to providing free, high quality music programming to underserved communities in Miami. Through peer to peer mentoring, YMU engages students of different backgrounds and brings them together through a shared passion for music. YMU addresses education gaps to develop leaders, boost personal development and inspire self-confidence.
YMU has quickly grown to service 240+ students through 6 schools, serving 13 different programs in Overtown, Wynwood and Coral Gables. All students receive 80-100 lessons throughout the school year in addition to their own instrument to take home for the year. Since inception, YMU has worked with 490+ students. YMU students/grads have received mentorships by New World Symphony Fellows, been accepted to schools such as the New World School of the Arts and have gained entrance into college on full music scholarships.
We are looking to raise $100,000 at the Spring Concert to further our impact. By the Fall of 2018, YMU will be expanding from 12 to 16 programs which will raise the number of students impacted to 350+ musicians per year. New programming will expand our impact into a Little Haiti and Opa-Locka.
We are very proud of our programs, such as our Overtown Jazz Band and Rock Ensemble. Our Jazz ensemble has performed at numerous venues such Miami Heat Games, New World Symphony, The Arsht Center and The Fillmore. Overtown, located in the heart of Miami, has a history as one of the “meccas” of jazz music in the US. We are proud of our work on bringing jazz education back to our public schools.
Through a three year partnership, YMU serves as Overtown Youth Center’s music education providers at Jose De Diego Middle, Booker T. Washington High & Edison Senior High. On Friday, May 18 YMU will be celebrating our 7th Annual Spring Concert at Racket in Wynwood. The Spring Concert is YMU’s largest fundraiser of the year and is key to the continued growth of our organization. This show marks an opportunity to work with our partners and donors and most importantly showcase our students!

Thank you for your support.
