Brooklyn Youth Music Project (BYMP) is a community-based afterschool youth orchestra and jazz ensemble program. We are dedicated to teaching and inspiring musicians of diverse backgrounds, ages 5 to 18, to learn and perform challenging classical and jazz ensemble repertoire. In addition to our school-year long program which offers three levels of orchestra and two levels of jazz, BYMP also offers a two-week intensive summer music camp in July. BYMP, building character and community through musical excellence!

Brooklyn Youth Music Project
The Brooklyn Youth Music Project is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to extending the reach of musical training to all young musicians ages 5 to 18 in the Brooklyn community and beyond, to supporting the development of lifelong learners and to contributing to a culture of youth musicianship that meets the highest standards of excellence. We are a stand-alone youth organization, not affiliated with a professional orchestra.
Our organization is dedicated to extending the reach of musical training to all young musicians in the Brooklyn community and beyond, to supporting the development of life-long learners and to contributing to a culture of youth musicianship that meets the highest standards of excellence.
We are the only program in Brooklyn to offer three levels in orchestra and two levels of Jazz ensemble. These different programs for different skill levels, coupled with our low tuition and need-based scholarships, allow us to include a great diversity of young musicians. Such a range allows students to develop their individual skills as performers as well as their sensitivity and responsiveness as collaborators. This in turn fosters the growth of the ensemble as a whole.
BYMP has rapidly grown from a 25-member string orchestra to a multi-tiered program reaching over 200 children annually, largely from public schools. This vigorous growth attests to a need in the Brooklyn youth music community that we are proud to fill.
