A COMMUNITY BASED COLLEGE OF PERFORMING ARTS FOR CHILDREN

We teach children to

play the violin, viola, cello, piano and use their melodious voices to stay

"Off the Street and On the Stage!"

100% of our high school graduates are either enrolled in -- or have completed their education at the college of their choice.
 

 

WELCOME

Thank you for visiting!  We offer violin lessons to boys and girls from 3rd to 12th grades.

We offer Voice Lessons to children from ages 8 to 18.

We offer Piano Lessons to children from ages 3 to 18.

We are in the process of forming a new Community Chorale Group

Our Gifford Florida Youth Orchestra performs at least once a year as well as being invited to special events.  Visit  upcoming concerts & events for dates.  Check out GYO photos of past events.

 

We have placed violins, violas and cellos in the hands of over 160 young people from 2003 to 2016.  We depend upon donations to provide instruments, instruction and sheet music to the members of our orchestra. 

The GYO in a Nutshell

 
The Gifford Youth Orchestra changes lives.  The GYO gives tools to at-risk children who face the risk of remaining in a cycle of poverty.  The GYO gives children a reason to hope and to dream.  The GYO keeps children off the street and on the stage.  The GYO spotlights children who are often "pigeon-holed" as being worthless, less than, and a threat to society.  The GYO says to those children, "Yes you can!"  The GYO uplifts an entire community.   And, for that reason, we accept donations to support our life giving cause.
