We are primarily a volunteer driven, and a proud part of the musical fabric of the region. We teach youth how to work as a musical team and above all have fun while doing what they enjoy. “AGE IS A BARRIER THAT CAN BE OVERCOME WITH THE HELP OF A YOUNG MUSICIAN.”
PSMFYA started out as a group of young people with the South Sound Blues Association, we were playing music, singing, and swing dancing at the 2009 Daffodil Parade where we took a first in our division. Jumpin Josh was our featured guitarist on that float. In June of that year we became the Puget Sound Music For Youth Association (PSMFYA), to date we have formed over 35 bands and have seen over two hundred young musicians cross our stages. The musical teams of kids range in age from 11 to 18. We have Blues, Rock, Hard Rock, Classic Rock, Country and Metal. At any given time we can have 10-15 kids looking to play in a band. Our goal is to increase the number of kids in bands and get more kids involved to create more musical teams. And within a short time the bands are created. These kids play awesome music and perform around the Puget Sound Region.
