Through music, the American Young Voices program strives to:
American Young Voices is an all-inclusive educational program designed to use music to develop 21st-century skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity, mindfulness, and innovation. We provide extensive support materials and resources for teachers and a multifaceted experience for children that encourages a life-long love of music.
This musical journey culminates in an arena near you where thousands of students come together as a massive chorus. At an American Young Voices concert, your students are the stars! They are accompanied by a live band of accomplished musicians with professional lighting and sound in front of an audience of thousands of their families and friends from your community!
American Young Voices makes music education matter by providing a transformative musical experience for students while building community through music.
“I would bet our chorus numbers will double once the word gets around about this experience. For one night you guys turned thousands of kids into rock stars.” - Brian S. (Teacher)
“Amazing doesn’t describe tonight. What an incredible experience for every student that attended!” -Lauren F. (Teacher)
"We participated last year, and it was an epic experience!! My students and I were in awe and love being a part of this program. It changed their perspective of performing. We are excited to participate again!!" - Melissa A. (Teacher)
Our varied and exciting repertoire is specifically selected to engage and educate your students. AYV music is fun, accessible, and educational.
“Everything about this experience was just great: the material chosen, the fabulous conductor, the great band, singers and MC, the lighting, standing behind the stage and experiencing how a rock concert looks from up close and so much more. We will definitely be there EVERY YEAR!” - Dassi R (Teacher)
“The reviews have been rave and everyone is already talking of returning next year. What a great moment that was! Everything that one hoped for ...and beyond! I am so happy that our school was part of it. We will be back! - Remy L. (Teacher)
Join the massive chorus of thousands of students and change lives through this unique musical experience.
As a teacher, you can expect so much from the American Young Voices experience, not only on the day of the concert but during the time leading up to it.
The team of professionals that bring American Young Voices to you are always hard at work making sure that you get the most out of your rehearsal period. From the start, we are putting together information packs, musical arrangements, and teacher support CDs so that you can make the most of the time with your students before the big day.
To further assist you, there is an online teacher community called Yammer that is designed to be an open forum for you to discuss various aspects about the American Young Voices experience. Connect with other teachers and our online community managers to share tips and teaching ideas, ask questions, and so much more!
“I can’t tell you what an amazing experience American Young Voices was, not only for my kids but for me too! Parents are raving about it and kids are feeling like a million bucks to have been a part of such an event. They made friends with kids in other schools that were seated nearby which was a wonderful, unexpected bonus! It was so heartwarming to see so many kids being kids, enjoying and making music together and just having a great time! Thanks again for everything!” - Sue Y. (Teacher)
In addition to our online teacher community, music book, and teacher's manual, the AYV team is always available to help!

"All of your hard work was greatly appreciated...correspondences were prompt, materials arrived in a timely manner, and Erin, you were just wonderful in sending information and answering all of my questions quickly. Getting in the arena and leaving was easy - trying to find our bus in the midst of a sea of yellow buses was an adventure but didn't take too long! Thank you for everything and I hope to be there again next year!” - Ebony W. (Teacher)
"Your attention to detail and prompt answers to any questions was nothing short of amazing... I can't wait until next year!" - Lauren S. (Teacher)
