About MYOF

Malaysian Youth Orchestra Foundation (MYOF) was founded in 1997 with a mission to promote music education, participation, and appreciation to Malaysian Youth. Music, performed with precision yet exuding passion and spontaneity, somehow embraces its audience in a special magic. Music lifts the spirits. Music unites. Music speaks without words. Music transcends colour, creed and culture, and music is a powerful medium to help shape behaviour. An appreciation for orchestral music, be it European or Asian, brings a unique pleasure to both performer and listener alike.

The foundation runs its programmes such as workshops, competitions, concerts with the help from other organizations, businesses / corporations for a variety of continuing education for music students and teachers.

MYOF have recognized and awarded a few young performers through scholarships and financial assistance in their music programmes and education, as well as promotes the highest levels of professional development for music teachers.
