WHO WE ARE
Youth Training Orchestras of America (then West Hollywood Youth Orchestra) was formed in 2017 by Maestro Nunzio Sisto as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a simple purpose: to create a youth orchestra method so every town in America may offer a social music experience.
The issue: current youth orchestra programs are too expensive and require too many trained students than most cities in America may afford and recruit.
YTO's solution is our standardized 16-Part Method: an evolutionary educational method based on the smaller, modern orchestras of Broadway's pits and Hollywood's film studios. Our solution reduces the cost and number of students required so ANY town in America may offer a youth orchestra experience.
YTO's goal is to inspire the formation of a Youth Training Orchestra for every city in America. YTO provides teaching materials, videos and sheet music to member organizations as well as operates our Coachella Valley and NYC locations.
