driven by the idea that PYPO students will return each week to
their schools being leaders, mentors and guides for other budding
musicians. At PYPO, we do not place the product above the process...
we try to balance these two ideals each and every week.
Our staff is totally committed to challenging each musician,
nurturing each person and exploring the humanity behind the art.
We--the conductors and coaches--each enjoy creative lives which
mean performing and sharing. As the world of classical music
continues to undergo seismic shifts, at PYPO we cling to the
idea that personal expression transcends music, because a PYPO
education is not necessarily training just for a musical career--it
is training for a creative life.
