We are a tuition-free after school music program for kids K-12th grade. Our Mission is to nurture in Taos County youth a lifelong love of music and the opportunity to be empowered musically, socially and academically through the art of musical activities.
We have outstanding teachers who are also professional musicians. Our five teachers instruct 55-60 students each semester, in once-weekly classes. Each instructor approaches music education and performance differently and activities vary to appeal to students of different ages and skill level.
Classes include music education, Garage Band and Youth Choir. Our students perform in the community throughout the year, and in two open houses at the end of each semester. Teens and teachers approach learning as a team, resulting in real ownership of the experience.
Over 100 communities across the US will host local giving events on May 6th to support local causes and organizations. Each local gift will be amplified with dollars from a national incentive pool of funds, plus New Mexico will have its own, additional incentive prizes! Please support TYMS on this important day by making a gift online - and please share the information with everyone you know, both in state and out! Together, we can make a huge difference for TYMS and for philanthropy in New Mexico!
