Junior Original Concert
What is the Junior Original Concert or JOC?
The Junior Original Concert (JOC) is a performance which showcases the compositions of Yamaha Music students. Yamaha Music programs encourage all students to show their creativity through improvisations and compositions.
Over the years, JOC applications have sky-rocketed with more than 45,000 submissions each year!
What happens after the MUSICA ACADEMY JOC?
Students who choose to perform their compositions and are between the ages of 8-14 will have their performance videotaped. Once the video is edited, we will mail it to Yamaha Canada where the selection process will begin for the National Junior Originals Concert.
Start today by simply expressing your interest to your teacher and they will guide you to creating their first composition!
