Liechtenstein International Academy of Music


The guiding theme of the International Academy of Music in Liechtenstein is to support highly talented young musicians between 10 and 25 years of age. More specifically, its internationally renowned teachers/artists annually provide them with intensive one-on-one instructions of one week each per instrument. Thereby, the students are comprehensively prepared for admission to one of the best conservatories worldwide and for the beginning of a rewarding career. Rather than focusing solely on music training, the academy offers holistic instruction to assist students in handling the many areas of entering the performing arts market such as emotional and physical balance, media relations, handling the audience and creating ensembles, among other areas.
To the great delight of its founders, the Ensemble Esperanza, consisting of Academy of Music scholarship-holders, has recently been awarded with two of the most significant European prizes in the field of classical music: the ICMA`s (International Classical Music Awards) “Special Achievement Award 2017” and the “OPUS KLASSIK Award 2018”.
