To provide the youth of East Jefferson County with musical opportunities including instruments, instruction and performances.


All Jefferson county youth are creating music in our community.

YEA Music! (Youth Education in Arts) was started in 2018 to provide music opportunities to youth in east Jefferson County, Washington. The teaching philosophy is based on the El Sistema philosophy of music.

We have provided several after school music programs to students at Salish Coast Elementary and Blue Heron Middle School before having to suspend group activities due to Covic-19. During shutdown, YEA Music! has provided over 80 local students with zoom online lessons so that they can continue their musical growth.

We are currently preparing for a return to in person instruction with our 2021 YEA Music! camps (more info here).

We are working towards a goal of supporting an East Jefferson Youth Symphony Orchestra as well as an East Jefferson County Youth Jazz Ensemble.

YEA Music is currently under the Stronger Towns 501c3 umbrella which also includes The Benji Project, Skillmation, The Production Alliance and Connected Students Initiative.
