The International Piano Academy

Our Students

“Students” is not quite the meaning of those young artists admitted to the Academy.

“Pensionnaire” would be closer to reality. Many of the pianists on this list often come back to the academy after their official stay.

They come for lessons, advice and oftentimes comfort.
